Daniel Ortega assures that the Eurasian Economic Forum is promoting important links with Latin America

The President of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, stressed the importance of the Eurasian Economic Forum, which is being held in Moscow, and assured that, like this mechanism, other cooperation and integration blocs have been forming, highlighting Russia and China as the drivers of the new multipolar world.

In this sense, the president stressed that a large delegation, representing the Government of Nicaragua, is participating in the Forum of the Eurasian Economic Union, where they are addressing economic and transportation aspects, issues of interest for the Central American country.

Imperialist powers steal from the people

Regarding this, President Daniel Ortega assured that “the Eurasian Forum is promoting links with Latin America and the Caribbean», and in this way the economies of these nations in the region can get closer and have economic relations with countries that are powers”.

In this sense, he assured that the most important thing about this type of relationship, with the nations that make up the block of the Eurasian Union: Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Russia, is that they are not conditioned.  

These relations are established «without being blackmailed, without being threatened, without being attacked, and without being robbed, because the imperialist powers are robbing and plundering the peoples,» he said.

The Nicaraguan president explained that, during this meeting, there is a forum, where the participating nations address issues on the economic, commercial and industrial field; and there is another forum that has to do with security.

Russia and China are the big drivers

In this order, the president explained that in addition to the Eurasian Union, there are other blocks of cooperation and integration, which have been shaping this new reality in the world. 

“They are forming large blocs in the world: The African peoples, the Arab peoples, the Asian region, which is immense, and where China is, logically, one of the big ones,» he stressed.

In this context, he appreciated that «Russia and China are the great drivers at this time, to strengthen the other fronts that have been developing, including here in Latin America and the Caribbean, such as Celac.»
