ALBA-TCP condemns unilateral coercive measures against Nicaragua


The Member States of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) strongly condemn the new attack by the United States of America to expand the illegal and illegitimate unilateral coercive measures against the people and the Government of the Republic of Nicaragua, including specific measures related to the mining sector; as well as the announcement of new restrictions on visas for Nicaraguan officials, published on October 24th, 2022.

We reiterate the call upon all States, made by the United Nations General Assembly in its Resolution 75/181, to cease adopting or implementing any unilateral measures not in accordance with international law, international humanitarian law, the Charter of the United Nations and the norms and principles governing peaceful relations among States, in particular those of a coercive nature, thus impeding the full realization of the rights set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights instruments, in particular the right of individuals and peoples to development.

The Alliance reiterates its call to denounce these continuous aggressions and reaffirms its support and solidarity with the people and the Government of Reconciliation and National Unity of Nicaragua.
