The Nicaraguan Foreign Minister, Denis Moncada, requested the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), whose ministerial meeting is in session until Thursday in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, for its support and solidarity so that the United States (USA) compensates that Central American nation for the damage caused to it during the 1980s, when it financed a war against the Sandinista Revolution.


Azerbaijan urges NAM to fight against neocolonialism

During the ministerial meeting on the NAM's fight against emerging challenges, Moncada recalled that the International Court of Justice issued a ruling on June 27, 1986, in the case of Nicaragua versus the United States of America, requiring Washington pay Managua an indemnity of more than 17,000 million dollars.

The ICJ ruling was supported by the NAM during the summit that took place in the Zimbabwean capital, Harare, in 1986. Moncada requested that the final declaration of the ministerial meeting include the NAM's support for the claim of the Central American nation.

According to the Government of Nicaragua, the aforementioned compensation does not cover subsequent damages caused by the aggressiveness of the United States, since the country "continues to be the object of a new type of aggression, with what are now euphemistically called sanctions, and an attempt to coup d'état in 2018, which the Government and people of Nicaragua managed to neutralize".

Venezuela calls for unity of the NAM

For his part, the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Yván Gil, called for consolidating the unity of the NAM for the construction of a new world based on multilateralism, solidarity and cooperation.

He stressed the importance of countries fulfilling their international commitments in the areas of peace and security, disarmament and non-proliferation, development, climate change, human rights and transnational crime.

Among other issues, he urged to take advantage of the lessons left by the Covid-19 pandemic, which in his opinion showed "the deep inequities between the Global North and the South, as well as the effects of an unsustainable predatory model, in order to achieve the reform of the international financial architecture, which is today, morally, in ruin. The members of the NAM must be together within the framework of a truly inclusive and revitalized multilateralism".

Another participant in the ministerial summit, the outgoing Prime Minister of Montenegro, Dritan Abazovic, expressed that his country is ready to represent the values ​​of the NAM.

The head of government appreciated that Montenegro has observer status and is not a full member. "But we are a country that represents universal values ​​and promotes peace and stability everywhere. Our goal is to send a message that the size of the country is not important, nor the number of inhabitants, but the desire and energy to change things for the better," he told the media.

Previously, Montenegro announced that it will seek the support of the NAM to request its entry as a non-permanent member of the Security Council of the United Nations (UN).

Abazovic met this Wednesday with Azeri President Ilham Aliyev, to whom he conveyed Montenegro's interest in developing cooperation with Azerbaijan in energy, tourism, investment and other fields.
