India warns of ‘extreme’ risk of travel to Ecuador
India on Friday warned that “extreme” travel risks remain from Ecuador amid heightened tensions between the two countries over the death of a British diplomat.
In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said there were no signs of “serious disruption” in international travel between the countries.
“However, it is important to note that while there are some significant signs of the situation being managed, there are no signs or indicators of any major deterioration,” the MEA said.
The ministry added that India “strongly opposes” “any further actions that would increase tensions between India and Ecuador.”
The Indian Embassy in Quito said the “situation has not changed” in recent weeks.
“The Indian Government strongly condemns any further actions to increase tensions and tensions between our two countries.”
The ministry also cautioned against taking trips to Ecuador.
“Due to the current situation in Ecuador, we strongly advise you to remain vigilant in your travel and stay away from all areas of the country where there are ongoing security threats,” the ministry said.
