Mexico and Ecuador Tensions: Mexico Cuts Diplomatic Ties 

Mexico and Ecuador tensions have consistently increased after Ecuador Police broke into the Embassy. Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez has now warned Ecuador to cut all diplomatic ties. 

The tensions between two Latin American countries arise because of an action by Ecuador police. Police got a clue about what Ecuador wanted, and Ecuador’s former Vice President Jorge Glas took shelter in the Mexican Embassy. 

However, the police detained Jorge Glas from the Embassy, which increased tensions between Mexico and Ecuador. The situation has become so bad that diplomatic relations between the two countries are on the verge of ending.

Mexico accused Ecuador of violating international law and the country’s sovereignty. The Mexican president has ordered its agencies to end all diplomatic ties with Ecuador.
