Ortega in Honduras

Nicaraguan president shows up in Honduras for regional summit with with Joe Biden

(posted March 6, 2:30 p.m.)- President Daniel Ortega arrived in Honduras this afternoon to participate with his Central American colleagues in a meeting with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden to discuss drug trafficking and organized crime in the region.

Not known for his punctuality, Ortega remained true to form today by confirming his attendance today around noon, as his caravan tore north through Managua towards the airport.

After spending the first two years of his presidency dodging international feminists who protested his participation in political summits and forums in other countries, Ortega has made it a habit of either skipping international events or keeping his intentions to travel a secret until the last moment.
