Cuba rejects US-imposed restrictions on Nicaragua

Havana, Mar 15 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez on Friday rejected the restrictions imposed by the United States on trade in defense articles and services with Nicaragua, and described them as unjustified.

On his X profile, Rodríguez pointed out that the US Government implements sanctions of this nature on Nicaragua. At the same time, paradoxically, it maintains active military cooperation with those who massacred the Palestinian people.

On Thursday, the United States modified the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which controls defense articles, to include Nicaragua as a banned destination.

According to Mexican newspaper La Jornada, the US Department of Commerce also implemented more restrictive rules on Thursday to export US goods to Nicaragua, citing its “concern” over human rights abuses and deepening military ties with the Russian Government.
