Any person who requests asylum in Ecuador, we will consider as a human being whose basic rights we must respect”, said Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, APA reports quoting rt.com.

“We would analyze such a request with all responsibility,” he added.

President Correa confirmed that Syria's Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Miqdad had visited Quito a few weeks ago, but denied reports from Israel's Haaretz newspaper that they had discussed the possibility of granting political asylum to Assad, his family and his associates.

“These talks did not take place,” Correa said, noting that al-Miqdad expressed gratitude to Ecuador over its “objective position.”
