US Keeps Meddling in Nicaragua Affairs

Managua – The US constantly interferes in Nicaragua’s internal affairs through its ambassador here, Sandinista political circles denounced on Thursday in this capital.

Such were the statements made by sources interviewed by Prensa Latina, after Nicaraguan Ambassador Denis Moncada’s denunciation on Wednesday in the Organization of American States (OAS), when he directly alluded to Washington’s representative to this capital Robert Callahan.

The Nicaraguan diplomat accused Callahan of meddling in Nicaraguan internal affairs, and said the latest example occurred this week, when he refused to attend a meeting to open a highway section built in Leon department, with funds from the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA), sponsored by Washington.

On several occasions, the US diplomat has publicly supported attempts by Nicaraguan opposition parties, rating as fraudulent the 2008 municipal elections, when the Sandinista National Liberation Front won the majority of the country’s mayoralties.

In addition, he made continuation of the MCA conditional on the Nicaraguan government’s promotion of freedom of speech, respect for human rights, and free clean elections.
