The diplomat stated that these same strategies have been used against other countries, as part of measures to disrupt progressive governments of the region, and he recalled the cases of Venezuela and Cuba, nations that have been harassed by US pressures.

Now they intend to create groups or official commissions to continue with their interventionist policies, to gain ground with their geopolitical strategies. and continue with their plans” Moncada said in relation to the creation by the Organization of American States (OAS) of a Working Group, presumably to contribute to a peaceful solution to the crisis.

The Nicaraguan Foreign Affairs minister rejected the OAS´s procedures and described them as irregular and politically motivated.
