Ecuador expelled Venezuela’s ambassador to Quito yesterday after a Venezuelan government minister called Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno a liar, and Venezuela reciprocated by ordering Ecuador’s top diplomat to go home.

In a Wednesday press conference, Venezuelan Communication Minister Jorge Rodriguez said Moreno was a “liar” and accused him of exaggerating in a speech at the United Nations the number of Venezuelan migrants arriving in Ecuador.

Saying the comments were offensive, Ecuador expelled the Venezuelan ambassador and called its charge d’affaires at its embassy in Caracas back for consultations, its foreign ministry said in a statement.

Ecuador’s highest representative in Venezuela has been the charge. The ambassador position has been vacant for more than a year because of diplomatic disputes.
