“We inform you that the President’s plane (by Lennon Moreno) had an engine failure and had to make an emergency landing,” the Ecuadorian Ministry of Communications added in a statement: “President Lennon Moreno and the occupants of the plane are well and will return to Ecuador in the next few hours.”
The Ecuadorian president held high-level meetings in Washington last Sunday on cooperation, economic affairs and investment, as well as political issues related to democracy, freedom and respect for human rights.

During his five-day stay in the United States, Moreno met with representatives of the Congress, Cooperation, International Relations, Trade, the Environment and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank (PM) and the Inter-. American Development Bank (IDP).
