Cuba denies accusations of misuse of official passports in EcuadorHAVANA, Cuba, Nov. 14 (ACN) Ernesto Soberon, Director General of Consular Affairs and Cubans Living Abroad, of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, denounced today on Twitter the faking of the insinuations of Ecuadorian press regarding the alleged misuse of Cuban diplomatic and official passports.

Through this social media, Soberon expressed that there is no evidence to justify these accusations, published by different media of this South American nation, since the Cuban citizens carrying these documents rigorously comply with the provisions of the Vienna Convention.
Last Tuesday, November 12, the Minister of the Interior, Maria Paula Romo, when announcing that Ecuador was rescinding its health agreements with Cuba, said that the Government of Quito was calling the attention of 250 official Cuban passports into Ecuadorian territory.
"For us this is a number that is out of the usual, out of comparison with other countries, it calls our attention," said Romo, adding that they would have checked with the Cuban embassy and in most cases were Cuban doctors who are in the country regarding the collaboration agreement.
The agreements between Ecuador and Cuba date back to 2013, during a visit to Havana by then-President Rafael Correa.
