US senators highlight the management of Lenín Moreno and Secom confirms contract to improve the image of the government- Ecuador Times
Senators Bob Menéndez (Democrat, from New Jersey) and Jim Risch (Republican, from Idaho), who are part of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, presented a resolution that ratifies the progress of bilateral cooperation and ratifies the support for Lenin Moreno government.
The president assumed power in May 2017 and within a few months he overturned foreign policy, which during the previous ten years, under the mandate of Rafael Correa, had maintained distances and discrepancies with the guidelines of the United States.
In a statement, the senators said that this initiative is joined by fellow Democrats Ben Cardin and Tim Kaine, and Republicans Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. “In the past three years there has been a unique opportunity to improve a bilateral relationship that was marked by unfortunate tensions,” said Menéndez.
Risch noted that this resolution is a sign of support for democratic countries and condemned the Venezuelan government of Nicolás Maduro, as well as China’s debt policies.
