The Nicaraguan government described the death of the powerful Quds Force commander of the Iranian Revolution's Qasem Soleimani as "international terrorism" on Friday in Iraq by order of US President Donald Trump.
In a press release issued on Friday, the Government of President Daniel Ortega, one of Iran's main allies in Latin America, said it was a "crime committed against his great anti-terrorist fighter and national hero of the Islamic Republic of Iran." .
Nicaragua also expressed its "concern and dismay" about "peace in the world."RELATED
Trump confirmed that he ordered to kill Soleimani to "stop a war" and not to start it.
They ask for respect for sovereignty
The Nicaraguan government called for "serious, responsible and credible actions, which take into account the extreme risk we run as civilization."
He added that Nicaragua "joins the multiple declarations and manifestations that warn about the aggravation of a crisis that is already having, and would have, very dangerous, disastrous, devastating consequences, for all humanity."
The Nicaraguan government also demanded justice, security and "respect for the international legal order, the sovereignty of nations and peace."
Agreement with Iran
Last August Iran was a priority on a tour that was made by the Nicaraguan Foreign Minister, Denis Moncada, for Africa and Asia.
A month later, the Sandinista majority of the National Assembly endorsed a reciprocal investment promotion and protection agreement between Nicaragua and Iran.
Nicaragua's claim in favor of Iran comes at a time when the country is experiencing a socio-political crisis that has left hundreds of opponents dead, while Ortega explains that he defends himself from a "failed coup d'etat."
Different agencies of the Organization of American States (OAS) and multilateral organizations that defend human rights hold Ortega responsible for the violence, which is why some of his relatives and relatives have received international economic sanctions.
