Ecuador has ordered 20 US military staff working at the US Embassy in Quito to leave the country by the end of the month.

US embassy spokesman Jeffrey Weinshenker said on Thursday that the group was ordered to halt work on April 7, The Associated Press reported.

Officials in Washington say the 20 people have not yet left the South American country. They say the expulsion does not affect the embassy's military attaché.

In January, Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa publicly complained that the US had too many military officers in the country.

At that time, he said he planned to order some to leave. Many observers say that the action was taken over concerns about US espionage.

Relations between the US and Ecuador have been strained in recent years, even before Correa  granted political asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in June 2012 in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

Assange gained international prominence in 2010 when WikiLeaks began publishing thousands of confidential US diplomatic cables, which embarrassed the US government. The website has also published hundreds of thousands of classified US documents relating to the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Ecuador had previously forced out several US diplomats including then-ambassador Heather Hodges in 2011.

According to the official diplomatic note sent to the US State Department, the specific 20 military personnel need to leave, because they're constantly meddling with the domestic affairs of Ecuador. In addition, the Govt. of Ecuador officially requests the US Govt., that from now on keep the number of military personnel assigned to the embassy below 50.

Excellent!All US spies should be kicked out.President Rafael Correia is too kind to the enemies of his country.He should have given them 24 hours,to pack their bags and be on the plane back to the "land of the free,and the home of the brave"....hahhahaha !

Be cautious, this is not something to cheer about. The US is looking to turn am innocent and peaceful country into a threat so it has an excuse to turn it into another Ukraine. Ecuador may has already taken the bait.

Throw out Canadians as well
Canada's front company CIDA (which is a spy agency disguised as a 'development agency') is also very active in Ecuador for decades. CIDA has hundreds of workers (spies) studying Ecuador (and other Latin American countries) and looking for ways of creating uprisings, terrorism and seeking targets for assassination etc. in the interests of Anglo/NATO neo-colonial greed.

Peace
The move is excellent and hope Nouri Maliki of Iraq does the same thing.

It is good to see. I think it is advantageous for all the countries that don't hold U.S.Gov. in kind, should cause total international havoc at this time. It will leave U.S so confused and they won't have any idea what to do about it.Their madness is so extreme that the best to do is to utterly confound them.

Markusin reply to pj
Fully agree. They should expel them all, I would go even further, close down their embassies as well.

You can guarantee that the main object of the US embassy staff is espionage.

The US is being increasingly isolated from the rest of the world as people have simply had enough of its terrorism, coups, financial and economic blackmail, and otherwise acting as a destructive force wherever they claim an 'interest'.
