He went on to say that failure of various imperialistic plots in the world has provided suitable conditions for further cooperation and unity among the freedom loving and independent states.

Blandón, for her part, voiced Managua’s enthusiasm for promotion of cooperation with Iran.

“We are witnessing that the Iranian people have managed to achieve many honors under difficult conditions,” she pointed out.

Iran has been seeking to boost its ties with Latin American countries in recent years to the concern of the United States.

The strong and rapidly growing ties between Iran and Latin America have raised eyebrows in the US and its western allies since Tehran and Latin nations have forged an alliance against the imperialist and colonialist powers and are striving hard to reinvigorate their relations with the other independent countries which pursue a line of policy independent from the US.
