Such statements are framed in a letter signed by Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Denis Moncada and sent to Panama as president pro tempore of the Group of Latin American and Caribbean countries (GRULAC).
The letter rejected the interfering statements by Colombia, a country that invalidated Panama’s nomination for the vice presidency of the 37th session of the Regional Conference of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), to be held in Ecuador.
Managua had been designated for the position of vice president of the said meeting, but Bogota did not agree and issued a press release in which it questioned the human rights issue here as “serious.”
“Nicaragua is recognized by FAO in its achievements and success by our country in food security. Our country has received several recognitions from FAO for merits in the fight against hunger,” the report states.
According to the Foreign Ministry, in 2021, Nicaragua took over with dignity and success the Presidency of the historic 42nd Session of the FAO Conference.
The Nicaraguan communiqué described Colombia as a “narco-state” where its citizens are assassinated with impunity, and highlighted Colomibia’s violations of the peace agreements; as well as the commission of electoral fraud.
The text pointed out that Colombia is the world’s largest producer and exporter of cocaine.
According to United Nations indicators, in the 2019 report, more than 70 percent of the cocaine consumed in the world was produced in Colombia.
