Nicaragua crisis closes UN debates

Nicaraguan Foreign Minister calls for commitment to peace

While the world was in the midst of a crisis largely sparked by interventionism and “savage capitalism”, Nicaragua continued to bolster peace, strengthen security, “and…promote and defend human rights,” Minister for Foreign Affairs Denis Moncada told the United Nations General Assembly on Monday, emphasizing his country’s commitment to the UN Charter.

“The attempted coup d’état that we have conquered in Nicaragua is the result of this interventionism,” he explained, denouncing the events as “terrorism disguised as peaceful protest.”

In a call to action against the growing tide of unilateral and interventionist policies, the Moncada said “we must work for justice, peace, respect, dialogue, [and] sovereign security in the world,” calling for “complete nuclear disarmament,” and supported the denuclearization of North Korea.

Condemning economic sanctions against neighboring Cuba, he emphasized that “Nicaragua rejects any coercive economic measures to try to bend the will and spirit of freedom and sovereignty of peoples.”

Moncada added that Nicaragua’s virtues of “social development, poverty reduction, gender equity, and citizen security” provide a strong impediment against terrorist incursion in that country’s continued fight against international terrorism.

Turning to climate change, Moncada concluded that “to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, we need to repeal the unilateral coercive measures that are in violation of international law and that impede the development plans of our countries. Only through negotiation, above all, free from the use or threat of the use of force,” can this be accomplished.
