Guaidó-appointed ambassador takes possession of Venezuelan embassy in Costa Rica

February 21, 2019

Update with editor’s note: The U.S. Department of State website provides a good summary of international relations between an embassy and its host country. It has been lightly modified below:

An embassy is the headquarters for Government representatives serving in a foreign country.

While the host government is responsible for the security of diplomats and the area around an embassy, the embassy itself belongs to the country it represents. Representatives of the host country cannot enter an embassy without permission — even to put out a fire — and an attack on an embassy is considered an attack on the country it represents.
