Nicaragua (9 May 2018)


Minister Sidharta Marin, President Daniel Ortega’s special assistant on foreign affairs, was received at his request on May 7 at the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs.

On this occasion, he was reminded that France condemned the violence that had taken place in recent days in Nicaragua. He was also reminded of the need to thoroughly investigate reports of disappearances and poor treatment subsequent to arrests following the demonstrations held in recent weeks. Nicaraguans should have free rein to exercise their right to demonstrate.

France calls on all the parties to swiftly implement the national dialogue with which the Church of Nicaragua has been tasked in order to end the crisis, while maintaining an open dialogue with regional organizations
