On the Quito-Caracas return flight, the Venezuelan ambassador to Ecuador, Carol Delgado, was also on board, who was expelled yesterday by the Ecuadorian government.
“I’m going to my Bolivarian Homeland, we do not need 72 hours to leave Ecuador, in less than 24 I’m on my way to my land,” exclaimed Delgado.
The diplomat also noted that there are still representatives of Venezuela in the Embassy.
“The Plan Vuelta la Patria will keep in motion, there are very competent people in charge, we are a team, there are approximately one thousand pending applications from Venezuelans who are waiting to be repatriated”, she said.
It should be remembered that the expulsion of the Ambassador comes after the People’s Power Minister for Communication and Information, Jorge Rodríguez, denied the figures presented by the President of the Republic of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, regarding the migration of Venezuelans in the Republic of Ecuador, on September 25 before the United Nations (UN).
The nationals were received by a commission of the People’s Power Ministry for Foreign Relations in the Venezuela Room of the Maiquetía International Airport.
After singing the glorious notes of the National Anthem, welcoming words were offered by the staff of the Directorate of Consular Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Relations and Ambassador Carol Delgado, to later listen to the testimonies and experiences of the returnees.
Since the launching of the Plan Vuelta a la Patria by President Nicolás Maduro, a total of 8303 nationals have returned safely and free of charge to the country.
