02.11.2018 - Press release

Minister of State Niels Annen issued the following statement in Managua yesterday (1 November) regarding his trip to Nicaragua:

In a still tense situation in Nicaragua, I was able to hold serious talks with all sides about the situation and possible ways out of the crisis, including with President Daniel Ortega, Vice President Rosario Murillo and Foreign Minister Denis Moncada, as well as with the Catholic Church and members of the opposition. The fundamental willingness shown by all sides to consider steps towards achieving understanding was most welcome.
