Latin American Leaders Ratify Solidarity with Nicaragua in Cuba

Havana, Jul 17 (Prensa Latina) The Presidents of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, and El Salvador, Salvador Ceren, reaffirmed today their solidarity with Nicaragua and the government led by Daniel Ortega at the 24th Meeting of the Sao Paulo Forum.

Our unconditional support with President Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo, Maduro said when speaking at the plenary session of the conclave that ends on Tuesday at the Havana Convention Center.

In the presence of more than 600 delegates and guests at the Forum, the Venezuelan leader condemned actions of sectors of the international right to destabilize the constitutional government of Nicaragua.

In his speech, Sanchez Ceren also reaffirmed his solidarity with the Nicaraguan people in the face of attempts to alter the constitutional order, to overthrow the legitimately elected government by force, and to wrest from the population the great social and economic progresses.

Nicaragua is one of the countries that achieved the greatest growth and stability in the region, the statesman recalled.

We support President Ortega’s decision to maintain a respectful dialogue to find agreements that allow that sister nation to stop the escalation of violence and continue on the path of progress and improvement of the population’s quality of life, in peace and with democratic stability.

More than a hundred parties and organizations of the Latin American and Caribbean left integrate the Sao Paulo Forum, for whose emergence the contributions of Fidel Castro and the former president and founder of the Workers’ Party of Brazil, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, were decisive.
