Politics 25 April, 2022

On Monday, April 25, Nicaragua left the Organization of American States, which will soon close its offices in Managua. This was reported by the press service of the government of Daniel Ortega in Central America. Earlier, Nicaragua in November 2021 launched the process of withdrawing from the OAS due to political condemnations and US interference in other countries.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Nicaragua, Denis Moncada, announced the acceleration of the process of the country’s withdrawal from the association. According to his statements, the OAS does not fulfill its obligations to ensure security in the world, as well as to protect democracy and human rights. As a result, the country’s leader Daniel Ortega decided to resist external interference and dictatorship from the members of the Organization of American States.

«Nicaragua ceases to be part of the deceptive mechanisms of the OAS. We do not want to have anything to do with the diabolical tool in the form of this political organization that is involved in destabilizing the world order. In the near future, our representative office in Managua will be closed. After that, the process of our country’s withdrawal from the OAS will be completed», – this was stated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Nicaragua Denis Moncada.

Earlier, the politician noted the OAS’s opposition to the unity of the regions, as well as the sovereignty and self-determination of peoples. So, in November 2021, the OAS member countries did not recognize the re-election of Daniel Ortega to a fourth term after the imprisonment of the opposition. After that, the Government of Nicaragua reported on the inadmissibility of interference by other countries in the self-determination of the people and the beginning of withdrawal from the OAS.
