The National Assembly of Nicaragua rejected, on Tuesday, the intervention of the Organization of American States (OAS), a body that questioned the democratic development of the Central American country in violation of international law.

The assembly’s announcement followed a November 12 statement by the Organization of American States (OAS) interfering in the country’s affairs.“It expressly violates the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other states,” the Nicaraguan legislature said.

“We ask the other powers of the state of the Republic of Nicaragua to speak out against this disgraceful act of intervention, so that together we can continue to defend the sovereignty and dignity of our country,” the National Assembly said.

Referring to Article 138 of the Constitution of Nicaragua and Article 92 of Law 606, the members of the Assembly condemned the repeated position of the Organization of American States, expressed in the resolution approved in Guatemala City.

The conference noted that it was not the first time that the Organization of American States interfered in the country’s affairs. “The last intrusive measure was to state that the general elections held in our country lacked democratic legitimacy, and obeyed the interests of traitors and US White House officials.”, He said.

“Nicaragua has historically promoted and respected international law and its institutions; the legislative branch has declared that our international relations are based on friendship, complementarity and solidarity among peoples and reciprocity between nations.
