The U.S. debt to Nicaragua has not disappeared

In this context, during a press conference, Dr. Carlos Arguello, Nicaragua’s representative to the ICJ, said: «Is it a historical obligation that exists on the part of the United States and it is a historic right for Nicaragua not to have resigned. The debt hasn’t disappeared, it’s a legal debt.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Nicaragua, in its note, detailed that on 28 June 1986, the ICJ condemned, through a judgement, the United States Government to compensate Nicaragua for all the damage caused as a result of military and paramilitary activities against Nicaragua.

Despite the fact that the Court recognized that in a situation of armed aggression such as that carried out by the United States, no reparation, neither economic nor moral, could compensate for the devastation of the country, the loss of life and the physical and psychological wounds of the Nicaraguan people, the Court decided that the United States had a legal obligation to repair Nicaragua for all the damage caused, the Nicaraguan diplomatic institution stressed.
