King Felipe Praises Ecuador Citizens Living in Spain during President’s Visit

MADRID – Spain’s King Felipe VI praised on Monday Ecuadorian citizens living in Spain during an official lunch in Madrid held in honor of the Latin American country’s President, Lenin Moreno, and his wife, Rocio Gonzalez.

The king made his comments alongside his wife Queen Letizia during the event at the Royal Palace, which Moreno and his wife attended as special guests.

“Ecuadorians living in Spain contribute substantially to the prosperity of our society with their effort and personal sacrifice that involves leaving their own country behind,” said the king.

Speaking in front of some 100 guests, among them officials and representatives from the world of business, academia, religion, culture and communication from both nations, King Felipe paid “a well-deserved homage” to the 400,000 Ecuadorian migrants he said were contributing to the prosperity of Spanish society.

He said that Ecuador would always be able to “rely on the support of Spain” regarding its journey toward “a more prosperous and fair society.”

Moreno thanked the king for his country’s support regarding the request that Ecuadorians be exempt from a Schengen visa when traveling for tourism, business and cultural interests.

The king highlighted strong bilateral relations between the two countries and expressed confidence that economic cooperation would “continue to strengthen” and reach its full potential with the help of an Ecuador-European Union commercial deal when it comes into force provisionally from Jan. 1.
