Venezuelan FM puts off trip to Ecuador
As it appears from a press release from the Ecuadorian Foreign Office, the meeting between Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua and his Ecuadorian counterpart has been deferred "by reason of agenda"
The meeting to be held in Quito between Jaua and his counterpart Ricardo Patiño "has been postponed by reason of agenda. Nevertheless, the Foreign Offices of Ecuador and Venezuela will continue discussing and preparing a new agenda for the next few days," the Ecuadorian Foreign Office noted, as quoted by AFP.
Jaua and Patiño had plans to meet to "review the matters in the common interest in the bilateral relation, as well as in the political, economic, trade and cooperation ambits."
The Venezuelan diplomat was appointed to his current position on January 15 by Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, who remains in a Cuban hospital.
