Spain Declares Venezuela Envoy Persona Non Grata in Strict Reciprocity
Jan 28, 2018, 00:15
The Venezuelan administration also recalled its own ambassador from Madrid, Mario Isea, after Spain declared him "persona non grata" on Friday.
"The government responds proportionally, and therefore has decided in the principle of reciprocity, to declare "persona non grata" Venezuela's ambassador to Spain", he said.
Less than 24 hours after the diplomatic spat first erupted in connection with sanctions being enacted against Venezuela by the European Union, Isea was given notice that he had three days to pack his bags and leave the country: the same time the Spanish minister was given to leave Caracas.
On Monday the European Union announced measures targeting people in charge of security forces accused of widespread abuses, particularly during the 2017 anti-government protests.
