Nicaragua supports Russia’s efforts to ensure security and stability at the international level, Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Denis Moncada Colindres said during talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on Thursday.
Moncada is in Moscow accompanied by a high-profile government delegation, which includes representatives from several Nicaraguan agencies and departments.
“Our government also continues supporting Russia in its foreign policy and all of its efforts in the sphere of security and stability at the international level,” Nicaragua’s top diplomat said, pointing to stronger bilateral relations, “consolidation, friendship and cooperation between our countries.”
Russia and Nicaragua “have the right to exist as free, sovereign and independent countries,” ensure security and preserve their integrity, the Nicaraguan foreign minister stressed.
Moscow and Managua have confirmed their intention to deepen economic cooperation between the two countries, Lavrov told a press conference following talks with his Nicaraguan counterpart.
“We confirmed readiness to further expand trade and economic cooperation,” he said. “In present-day conditions it slightly lags behind the rates we would like it to demonstrate,” the minister added.
In this respect the parties agreed on employing the potential of the intergovernmental Russian-Nicaraguan commission on trade-economic and scientific-technical cooperation, he noted.
