Saturday, July 17, The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) rejected new unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States against Nicaraguan officials.
Through its Twitter account, the regional organization released a statement in which it also condemns the new aggression of the US administration towards 23 judges and prosecutors in Nicaragua.

“This new attack continues the unilateral coercive measures that the United States of America has illegally and illegitimately imposed on the government and people of the Republic of Nicaragua, aggression that seek to alter the political and social stability of the country,” reads the statement.
Likewise, the regional alliance raised a call for the international community to denounce this type of aggression “that violates the fundamental principles of the Charter of the United Nations. It also ratifies its solidarity with the people and the government of reconciliation and national unity of the Republic of Nicaragua.”
From Venezuela, Foreign Affairs Minister Carlos Faría stated on the same social media platform that the new sanctions against the Nicaraguan people represent an attack on the sovereignty and independence of the peoples.
