The General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping, informed Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega that has an interest in strengthening “mutual political trust” between the two nations, whose relations have recently been renewed. The information was released by the Nicaraguan government itself last Sunday (20), according to the international press

Through a letter, Jinping thanked Ortega for the congratulations sent on the occasion of the Chinese New Year, the “Year of the Tiger”, which begins on February 1st. In the text, the dictator of China stated that he was willing to “promote cooperation in various fields, as well as shake hands to build a community with a shared future for humanity.”

Relations between China and Nicaragua were established in December in 2021, when the Central American country broke its diplomatic relations of more than three decades with the province of Taiwan, seen as “rebel” by the great Asian dictatorship. This occurred after the Organization of American States (OAS), the European Union and much of the international community did not recognize the Nicaraguan elections, which took place last November, in which Ortega was fraudulently re-elected.
