Ecuador has no plans to halt commerce ties over Snowden: Correa

Ecuador has no plans to halt commerce ties over Snowden: Correa

(Reuters) - Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa said on Thursday he had no plans to cut off commercial ties with any country as a result of pressures over potential asylum for former U.S. security contractor Edward Snowden.

2. I've heard both things today - either they unilaterally ended trade agreements with the USA

or they have no plans to halt commerce.

Sounds like they want to be vague for a while longer.

They did have to respond to Sen. Menendez who baited them for his own right wing purposes (on left wing leaders in Latam)

4. There was an earlier report

I think this is a more recent statement.

6. But, the "U.S. to Suspend Trade Privileges With Bangladesh"

The Obama administration on Thursday will suspend trade privileges for Bangladesh over concerns about safety problems and labor rights violations in that country’s garment industry, according to administration and Congressional officials.

The administration has come under intense pressure to suspend Bangladesh’s trade privileges after a factory building there collapsed in April, killing 1,129 workers, and after a factory fire killed 112 workers last November.

Officials with the United States Trade Representative’s office declined to comment. Administration and Congressional officials said the official announcement would come later on Thursday

8. they are leaving him hanging

while they finish their trade negotiations.
he is going to get them concessions and better terms just by hanging there
if I were the Ecuadorians I would do the same thing
when they get a sweeter deal he will be told what he was going to be told anyways

9. Ecuador breaks US trade pact to thwart 'blackmail' over Snowden asylum

Ecuador has ramped up its defiance of the US over Edward Snowden by waiving preferential trade rights with Washington even as the whistleblower's prospect of reaching Quito dimmed.

President Rafael Correa's government said on Thursday it was renouncing the Andean Trade Preference Act to thwart US "blackmail" of Ecuador in the former NSA contractor's asylum request.

Officials, speaking at an early morning press conference, also offered a $23m donation for human rights training in the US, a brash riposte to recent US criticism of Ecuador's own human rights record.
