On Saturday, July 23, the president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, congratulated the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN), Nicaragua’s main political party, for the 61st anniversary of its foundation.
“Long live brave and patriotic Nicaragua!” wrote Maduro on Twitter. “I congratulate the Nicaraguans, our brother and leader Daniel Ortega, his companion Rosario Murillo, on the occasion of the 61st anniversary of the founding of the FSLN, a revolution that opened the path towards the future greatness of its people.”
¡Viva la Nicaragua valiente y patriota!

The FSLN was founded in 1961 as a political-military organization, inspired by the anti-imperialist legacy of Nicaraguan revolutionary Augusto César Sandino, who fought against US intervention in his country between 1927 and 1933.
The FSLN is currently the governing party of Nicaragua, led by President Daniel Ortega, who has strengthened ties of friendship and cooperation with the Venezuelan government and people.
Earlier, on Tuesday, July 19, the Venezuelan government congratulated Nicaragua on the 43rd anniversary of the victory of the Sandinista Revolution that overthrew the US-backed brutal Anastasio Somoza dictatorship.
Nicaragua fue en un faro de libertad para los pueblos de América que luchaban por su liberación. Junto al brillo de la heroica Revolución cubana, se convirtió en referencia de dignidad, firmeza, abnegación y coraje en las luchas de la Patria Grande contra el imperialismo. pic.twitter.com/Wiff1JSZwo

In fact, Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Minister Carlos Faría was present in Managua and participated—as representative of the Venezuelan people and its government—in the commemoration ceremony of the Sandinista Revolution.
“Nicaragua has been a beacon of freedom for the peoples of America who fought for their liberation,” Faría said in Nicaragua. “Along with the brilliance of the heroic Cuban Revolution, it became a reference of dignity, firmness, selflessness and courage in the struggles of the Great Homeland against imperialism.”
