Nicaragua blames Costa Rica for disrespectful statements

Managua, Oct 15. -The Nicaraguan government has described the statements by Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado as disrespectful and interfering, considering that he interferes in Nicaragua’s domestic affairs.

In a press release published on Monday, Nicaragua expressed its categorical disagreement with those statements, and rejected the pretentious and insolent interference of a statement by the Costa Rican Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship, which were released on Sunday.

On the other hand, the text pointed out that Nicaragua does not interfere in the internal affairs of any country and does not comment or pontificate on other nations' problems or on the sovereign decisions that the states take in relation to their affairs.

It also noted that as independent states, both neighboring countries should respect each other and not interfere.

“The Nicaraguan State is not attached to verbal confrontations or media exhibitions used by others as smokescreens with the intention of hiding the depth and gravity of social or economic problems,” they stressed.

It also indicated that Nicaragua has never been involved in Costa Rica's difficulties or crises, such as the one it is currently experiencing after more than a month of protests, strikes and denunciations of repression and police brutality, which have caused injuries, deaths, material damage and serious effects on the economy.

“The government of Nicaragua supports the call for fraternity and respect we owe as Central American governments and peoples, inspired by the wisdom of the Great Benito Juarez who said, “Respect for the rights of others is peace,” the statement concluded. (Taken from Prensa Latina)
