Ecuador was one of 12 Latin American countries that refused to sign an
Article 98 agreement and was consequently subject to sanctions.
Diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks detail the variety of underhanded
tactics employed by the US Embassy in Quito to persuade Ecuador to sign. It
also shows the embassy’s concerns about the “unintended consequences” of
ICC-related sanctions for other US policy objectives.
