Nicaragua opens embassy in Zimbabwe

Story by Tarirai Madhuyu

THE Second Republic’s engagement and reengagement agenda continues to bear fruit with the Republic of Nicaragua opening up an embassy in Zimbabwe.

The Republic of Nicaragua and Zimbabwe established diplomatic relations in 1984 and Zimbabwe extended support to the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) revolution in Nicaragua during the 1980s.

The relations have since been elevated after Nicaragua opened an embassy in Zimbabwe this Tuesday.

“We are grateful for the great hospitality which we experienced in Zimbabwe during the opening of our embassy in this country. This marks a continuation of our historic relations which we equally share through sanctions which have been exposed on both nations. We are looking forward to cooperate on education, agriculture, health and mining. We believe in sharing innovative solutions to pressing issues despite being geographically distanced. We need to foster peace and collaboration hence the need to celebrate this milestone,” said Republic of Nicaraguan Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Her Excellency, Ms Nadeska Imara Cuthbert Carlson.

Zimbabwe’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Economic Development and International Trade, Honourable Shiela Chikomo highlighted how western economic sanctions have affected both countries.

“On behalf of the government and the people of Zimbabwe, I would like to welcome the Nicaragua’s Ambassador to Zimbabwe. The opening clearly shows the effort by Nicaragua in collaboration with Zimbabwe. You concur with me the need for interaction between two countries in sectors of the economy and provide us with the opportunity to share mutual understanding. Zimbabwe and Nicaragua are together in the Like Minded group and the group of friends in defense and security.

“Zimbabwe and Nicaragua has been together for a long time and we cherish that these relations will escalate to various cooperation’s in the domain of culture and tourism among others. This relationship shall be deepening with Zimbabwe relations in all sectors of the economy thereby deepening beneficial partnership between two countries. Long live Zim-Nicaragua relations,” she said.

Nicaragua’s e economy is heavily dependent on agriculture, tourism and mining, just like Zimbabwe.
