The Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Affairs, Julio Borges, said Tuesday that the wave of protests against the Government of Lenín Moreno was planned by Nicolás Maduro, Raúl Castro and Rafael Correa, in order to undermine democracy in that country. He also called on the international community to curb the destabilizing plan that the Caracas and Havana regimes are spreading.
“We have no doubt that this plan was triangulated between Havana and Caracas to affect Quito. Maduro, Castro and Correa set out to end democracy in that country, using the resources of the Venezuelan people and promoting violence”, he said.
Borges warned that what exists behind is a destabilization project. “The international community cannot stand idly by this regional destabilization project, terrorist groups and anti-democratic movements are being financed here. No country can feel alien to this, what is wanted is to break democracy in the region”, he said.
The Presidential Commissioner sympathized with the president of Ecuador, Lenín Moreno. Likewise, on the appointment of the current Spanish Foreign Minister, Josep Borrell as head of the European Union’s foreign policy, he said that the most important thing is that “Europe joins the pressure agenda against the frontmen and family members who have enriched themselves with Venezuelan money. ”
He reiterated that the most effective way to produce a transition in the country is with the combination of internal and external pressure.

Esto solo demuestra que lo que ocurre es un plan de Maduro, Castro y Correa para acabar con la democracia en Ecuador. pic.twitter.com/3uTVLrjXei
