Gobierno de Reconciliación y Unidad Nacional
Unida Nicaragua Triunfa


1. Nicaragua reiterates its commitment toward Respect for Sovereignty, Territorial Integrity and Security for all Countries. The Member States must emphatically comply with the Purposes and Principles of the UN Charter. This applies to all United Nations Member States.

2. The de-escalation of tensions is urgently needed, always taking into account the legitimate interests of security of all the countries of the Region and in particular of the Russian Federation and Ukraine, with the aim of guaranteeing long-term Peace and Stability in that Region and beyond, as established by the Minsk Accords.

3. Nicaragua considers that the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine are essential to strengthen diplomatic efforts and thus guarantee Security and Peace; where NATO has insisted on ignoring the Agreements that were assumed at different times, with the Russian Federation, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

4. Because we want peace and we believe in the prevention and solution of conflicts through peaceful means, we reject unilateral measures, such as political and economic sanctions of any kind, which are being launched like bombs of mass destruction against the Russian Federation, by the United States and NATO, while also multiplying the shipment of weapons to Ukraine, which evidences that the United States and NATO are already involved in this conflict, that has global dimensions. All this escalation does is feed the war; having as its painful consequences deaths, injuries, mass migrations of Families, who are victims of hegemonist Policies and who are already causing serious damage to the Global Economy, being the Peoples of the Planet the victims of this crisis, that adds to the aftermath of the crisis in loss of life and damage to the economy, caused by the virus that has imposed a pandemic on all peoples.

5. The United Nations must play a constructive role in resolving the issue of Ukraine and give priority to Peace, Regional Stability, and the Universal Security of all Countries, and not promote tensions or actions that escalate the conflict.

6. Mr. President, this unfortunate conflict and loss of Life could have been avoided. It didn't have to happen. All of this is a product of disrespect and violations of the Charter of the United Nations, a product of interventionist policies in the internal affairs of the States, which gave rise to the Coup d'état in Ukraine in 2014, and the attacks and bombings against the populations of Donetsk and Lugansk, causing the deaths of thousands of people. This is a fact that cannot be forgotten.

7. It is time, it is the moment to avoid a total catastrophe, and we call on NATO, the United Nations and the International Community to firmly encourage and support the Dialogue and the Negotiation for Peace between the Russian Federation and Ukraine, which are the ones with the authority and strength to achieve stable, lasting and sustainable Peace in that Region of our Planet.

8. Therefore, it is not with biased policies and double standards that we will strengthen a World of Peace. It is with Unity, Solidarity, and Brotherhood among our Peoples. With Policies of Peace and Development. It is with efforts and diplomatic solutions that we will achieve International Peace and Security, and we repeat, it is not with policies of double standards.

9. We express our condolences to the families in Ukraine who have suffered the loss of Loved Ones, also to the Families of the Soldiers of Ukraine and the Russian Federation who have died in the conflict.

Thank you very much, Mr. President.
