Nicaragua and Honduras: Closer ties for a better future

In Managua, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega and his Honduran counterpart, Juan Orlando Hernandez, discussed the process of customs union and bilateral border security, as stated by an official source.

In the meeting with Hernández, Ortega reaffirmed the commitment of Nicaragua “to work for the incorporation of our country to the mechanisms of the Customs Union,” according to the vice president, first lady, and official spokeswoman, Rosario Murillo, in a press release.

Honduras and Guatemala, nations who are also working together in the political realm, opened their borders earlier on this month to the free movement of goods becoming the first countries to formalize the Central American customs union.

Ortega and Hernández also talked about “security in the region and how Honduras and Nicaragua have worked very well on this issue” through joint operations against organized crime, Murillo openly stated.

“Honduras and Nicaragua continuously, through our Armed Forces and Police, carry out exercises, joint operations, that help strengthen security in our border region”, affirmed the vice president.
