Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard revealed on Monday that Mexico has granted former Bolivian President Evo Morales political asylum following his recent resignation on Sunday, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Mexico's Ebrard further called for the Bolivian government to allow for Morales' safe passage, stressing that the former president's "personal integrity is not endangered." 

"Latin America has witnessed in its history of unfortunate and violent events in which the democratic order is broken, on numerous occasions with the participation of military forces," the Mexican official stated in an address.

Ebrard previously announced on Sunday - the same day that Morales had resigned from his presidential post - that Mexico would grant Morales asylum if he wanted it.
