"We condemn the new unilateral coercive measures and the visa restrictions imposed by the US against Nicaraguan executives, in an attempt to interfere in the internal affairs of that sister nation," said Rodríguez Parrilla.

Faced with this new attack, the Cuban Foreign Minister expressed his solidarity with the Nicaraguan population, "we express our solidarity with the Government and people of Nicaragua," he said.

The Cuban government's pronouncement comes after the US Treasury Department sanctioned six Nicaraguan officials as part of the inauguration of the President of this nation, Daniel Ortega.

"The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the United States Department of the Treasury appointed six officials of the Government of Nicaragua pursuant to Executive Order (Executive Order, EO) 13851," the statement underlined.

Continuing with the interference of the US in Nicaraguan affairs, the document details that in addition to the White House, the European Union (EU) also joins this measure that violates International Law.

"This measure is aimed at officials of the Nicaraguan military forces, the Nicaraguan Ministry of Defense, the Nicaraguan Institute of Telecommunications and Postal Services (Telcor) and the state company Empresa Nicaragüense de Minas (Eniminas)," the note states.
