The United States congratulates the people of Ecuador on successfully participating in a peaceful and fair national referendum on February 4, 2018. We commend Ecuador’s inclusion of independent observers from international organizations and the diplomatic community to help safeguard transparency.

We look forward to continuing to work with President Lenin Moreno and his government to advance common interests across a broad range of issues such as education, trade, security, environment, and disaster preparedness, among others. Our common interests will continue to drive the relationship between the people of Ecuador and the United States in a constructive direction.
