During an act on the eve of National Dignity Day, President Daniel Ortega alluded to Russia’s military operation in Ukraine as an act in defense of Russian sovereignty.
According to the Nicaraguan president, the conflict broke out because the United States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) use Ukraine to weaken Moscow.
“We are not happy about any war, but we are seeing that this is no longer a conflict between Ukraine and Russia as the United States is placing billions of dollars in modern weapons there,” said Ortega.
In this sense, he commented that the only solution for this war is dialogue and negotiation for peace.
In this regard, Ortega stated that Nicaragua welcomes and joins the peace proposal proposed by the president of China, Xi Jinping, who spoke of a global solution that provides security to the world.
China’s position upholds the idea of respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries, not intervening in internal affairs, and adhering to the path of development and social system independently chosen by the people of each nation and the principles of the United Nations charter.
