The private sector of Nicaragua is concerned that it is not possible to control the acts of violence and that this could cause the closure of “the line of national dialogue,” said Juan Sebastián Chamorro, after a meeting with envoys from the Carter Center in Managua.
“We are particularly concerned about repression, that this can get out of control and we are worried that the line of dialogue can be closed,” said Chamorro, executive director of the Nicaraguan Foundation for Economic and Social Development (Funides).
Jennie Lincoln, director of the Carter Center for Latin America and the Caribbean, said: “We are interested in the possibility of supporting the dialogue process. Dialogue is an important moment for Nicaraguans. ”
Chamorro added: “We believe it is important to always open the possibility of dialogue among Nicaraguans, because in the end that is the solution, to try to find the answer to the problems in a negotiated and peaceful way.”
Lincoln held meetings with representatives of different sectors of Nicaragua, and at the meeting held Tuesday with representatives of the private sector were also José Adán Aguerri and Álvaro Vargas, of the Superior Council of Private Enterprise (Cosep).
“Members of the private sector table team spoke with Lincoln, someone who has a lot of experience working in Nicaragua. The Carter Center expressed its decision to help in whatever is necessary,” said Chamorro.
The Carter Center, “since 1990 has been involved with Nicaragua and knows the territory very well, knows the country,” she said.
Referring to the march on Wednesday, she noted the importance of “highlighting the dialogue to solve the country’s problems.”
“The private sector is in favor of any demonstration, as long as it is peaceful,” said Chamorro.
María Nelly Rivas, Michael Healy, Álvaro Vargas, José Adán Aguerri and Juan Sebastián Chamorro will be the representatives of the private sector in the national dialogue that is being organized by the Episcopal Conference.
