We have been following developments in Ecuador closely since the start of the impeachment process against President Lasso at the end of March. Staff at the British Embassy in Quito hold regular discussions with the Ecuadorean Government and other stakeholders on a range of issues including the political outlook. I [Minister Rutley] discussed the impeachment process with the Ecuadorean Foreign Minister when I last met him on 5 May in London.
