Abstract: 

           On May 23, 2024, with a unanimous decision, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) denied Mexico’s request for provisional measures in the case Embassy of Mexico in Quito (Mexico v. Ecuador).[1] ICJ indicated that, under the current circumstances, there is no urgency nor any need to dictate provisional measures[2] following the forcible and unauthorized entry on April 5, 2024, by Ecuadorian authorities into the Mexican embassy in Quito, Ecuador.
