Since Monday, Mexico has accused Bolivia of ramping up police presence outside its embassy and intimidating diplomats.

The spat follows a chill in relations after Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador last month gave political asylum to former Bolivian president Evo Morales, a fellow leftist.

Mexico's Foreign Ministry said it called a meeting for Thursday so that the Bolivian charge d'affaires can "explain the behavior of Bolivian authorities," the ministry said in a statement.

It added that nine people are being housed in diplomatic facilities in Bolivia under Mexico's protection.
