Iran to open embassy in Ecuador

Press TV, 17 August, 2007
Iran will establish an embassy in the Ecuadorian capital Quito in a bid to strengthen its relations with the Latin American country.

Iran's government approved a proposal by the Foreign Ministry to open the embassy in Ecuador. Some 600,000 euros will be allocated to the ministry for launching the embassy.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad toured the Latin American country in January to attend the swearing-in ceremony of new Ecuadorian president, Rafael Correa. Ahmadinejad and his Ecuadorian counterpart, in a meeting in Quito on Jan. 15, agreed to follow up opening their embassies to boost bilateral ties.
