Congratulations to Ecuador’s President-Elect Lenin Moreno
The United States congratulates the people of Ecuador on taking part in the second-round Presidential elections on April 2. We also congratulate Lenin Moreno of the Alianza Pais party on his victory. However, we do note the concerns about the electoral process and expect that they will be fully considered and resolved in a legal and transparent manner.
Our countries have enjoyed nearly 200 years of diplomatic relations and strong and growing ties between our peoples. We look forward to working with the new government to build a constructive relationship in areas of mutual interest.
