On behalf of the Ecuadorian people and the Government I

I am convinced that the task entrusted to you by your people
to continue exercising the highest mandate of your country is
the motivation that will allow your Administration to
decisively face the new challenges of the international
agenda and to contribute with your best efforts to the
well-being of the American people.
I make vows for your success in this new stage in the
performance of your delicate duties, and I would like to
extend an invitation for you to visit my country, at a date
suggested by Your Excellency through the Department of State.
Your visit will be an occasion to strengthen even more the
excellent relations of friendship happily existing between
our countries, and it will allow us to set new goals in the
common road of cooperation and understanding that we
personally and our Governments have been able to develop.
I avail myself of this opportunity to reiterate to Your
Excellency the assurances of my most distinguished
Lucio Gutierrez Borbua, Constitutional President of the
Republic of Ecuador.
