1. After checking with the MFA, we have been unable to
confirm any recent Ecuadorian government actions to advance
democracy, human rights, and fundamental freedoms in Cuba.
Ecuador abstained from the UNHRC Cuban human rights
resolution in 2004. Further information on this subject may
be available through the EC mission in Geneva, according to
the MFA. As far as we know, the GOE does not maintain
information on investments by Ecuadorian individuals or
entities in Cuba. We are verifying that with the Finance
Ministry and will report any additional information SepTel.
