Two delegations from the communist parties of China and Vietnam arrived in Managua this Sunday, September 25. Both delegations were received by the son of the dictatorial couple, Laureano Ortega Murillo, presidential adviser for investments, according to official press publications.
According to statements quoted by the propaganda media of the Ortega-Murillo dictatorship, the visits of these missions of the communist parties are with the aim of “strengthening ties, closer cooperation and collaboration” with both political organizations.
The two missions will meet with deputies before the National Assembly, dominated by the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN), and authorities from the Managua Mayor’s Office this Sunday. In addition, they will hold meetings at the party level and government authorities.
Wang Yulin, director general of the Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean of the International Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, heads the delegation from the Asian giant.
Tran Duc Thang, Vice Chairman of the Control Commission of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, leads the Vietnamese mission.
Thang affirmed that the visit is not “only to increase the relationship between both parties, the State and people of Vietnam and Nicaragua, but that both parties can analyze the work of one and the other, learn more about the situation.”
For his part, Laureano Ortega Murillo said that the delegations will learn “how our party works for the benefit of the Nicaraguan people throughout the national territory… (and) in this way establish a strengthening and closer collaboration with the Communist Party of Vietnam, programs exchange (and) cooperation’.
“It is my great pleasure to return to this beautiful country again with the aim of further deepening the friendly ties between our two countries, our two parties and our two peoples,” said Yulin of the Communist Party of China.
The Ortega Murillo regime established diplomatic relations with communist China after breaking ties with Taiwan. Prior to this rupture, he benefited from the various programs and projects that the island carried out in the country.
In addition, the dictatorship ordered the expulsion of the diplomatic mission in Nicaragua, expropriated its assets and handed them over to the Asian giant so that they could install the embassy in the country.
