"No me pidan que claudique en mis principios y calle ante tanta hipocresía""Don´t ask me to faltered in my principles and be silent in to such hypocrisy"

"Nuestra dignidad no tiene precio". Ecuador "no acepta presiones de nadie y no claudicará en sus principios"
"Our dignity is priceless." "Ecuador does not accept pressures from anyone"

Con estas palabras se dirigió al pueblo ecuatoriano el presidente Rafael Correa, refiriéndose a la situación en torno a Edward Snowden.


"No me pidan que claudique en mis principios ante tanta hipocresía".
"No me pidan que cambie la probable locura de ser libre por la nefasta solvencia del servil"
"Do not ask me to change the probable madness of being free, for the pernicious solvency of the servile one ",
declaró el presidente Rafael Correa.

El presidente calificó de "inaudito" los intentos de EE.UU. de "deslegitimar a un Estado por recibir una petición de asilo", ya que "el otorgar o negar asilo es una atribución inherente a la soberanía de un país".

En su discurso el presidente confirmó la decisión de renunciar "unilateral e irrevocablemente" a las preferencias arancelarias de EE.UU., anunciada previamente por el secretario de Comunicación de Ecuador, Fernando Alvarado.

Asimismo, declaró que Ecuador todavía no ha considerado permitir el traslado a su país de Edward Snowden. El presidente precisó que Quito no puede tramitar la solicitud de asilo del ex empleado de la CIA, mientras él se encuentre en territorio de otro Estado.

Sin embargo, quiso destacar que "lo sustancial es el terrible caso de espionaje masivo tanto nacional como internacional realizado por el Gobierno norteamericano, lo cual atenta claramente contra el derecho a la intimidad y la soberanía de los Estados".

"No pierdan su tiempo. Ecuador no acepta presiones ni amenazas de nadie y no comercia con sus principios ni soberanía, ni los somete a intereses mercantiles", "Ecuador will not accept pressures or threats from anyone, and it does not traffic in its values or allow them to be subjugated to mercantile interests" reiteró el presidente Rafael Correa.

Terminó diciendo: "No me pidan que cambie la probable locura de ser libre por la nefasta solvencia del servil"

Ecuador renounced trade benefits which the US threatened to revoke over the Latin American country's consideration of harboring NSA leaker Edward Snowden. It offered $23 million a year to fund human rights education for Americans instead.

The government of leftist President Rafael Correa came up with an angry response on Thursday after an influential US senator said he would use his leverage over trade issues to cut preferential treatment of Ecuadoran goods at the US market, should Ecuador grant political asylum to Snowden.

"Ecuador will not accept pressures or threats from anyone, and it does not traffic in its values or allow them to be subjugated to mercantile interests," government spokesman Fernando Alvarado said at a news conference.

He added that Ecuador is willing to allocate $23 million annually, an equivalent of the sum that it gained from the benefits, to fund human rights training in the US. It will "avoid violations of privacy, torture and other actions that are denigrating to humanity," Alvarado said.

US Senator Robert Menendez, who heads the Foreign Relations Committee in the Senate, said this week that Ecuador risks losing the benefits it enjoys under two trade programs because of its stance on the NSA whistleblower.

"Our government will not reward countries for bad behavior," he said.

The US is Ecuador's prime trade partner, with over 40 percent of exports going to the US market.

Both programs were due to expire by the end of next month and were subject to congressional review. Before the Snowden debacle arose, the US legislature was expected to scrap one of them while renewing another one.

Snowden has applied for political asylum, hoping to find protection from American prosecutors, who charged him with espionage over his leaking of classified documents on US surveillance programs.

He is currently thought to be staying in the transit zone of a Moscow airport. He became stranded in the Russian capital after arriving from Hong Kong, because the US annulled his travel passport as part of its effort to get him to American soil for trial.
