Nicaragua condemns ‘xenophobic’ politics

More than 50 members of Costa Rica’s Legislative Assembly asked the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) to intervene in Nicaragua, citing the country’s lax response to the coronavirus.

In response, Nicaraguan lawmakers asserted that Costa Rica’s requests were “xenophobic and racist.”

“[The Costa Rican letter] reflects xenophobic and racist positions and is not the first time that they have expressed that against Nicaragua,” the response read.

The deputies argued Costa Rica’s concerns regarding Nicaragua’s coronavirus response demonstrated “arrogance and superiority” which are “not appropriate among Central American peoples.”
