The military seized power of Thailand on May 22

(posted June 8, 8:40 am)— The more Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega thinks about the recent coup d’état in Thailand, the more he doesn’t like it. On Saturday, the Ortega government released a rare press release condemning the Thai military coup and called for a return to a peaceful constitutional monarchy in the Southeast Asian country.

“The Government of Reconciliation and National Unity of the Republic of Nicaragua, with its unwavering policy in respect of legitimately constituted governments and institutions, joins the international community in rejecting and condemning the actions that have led Thailand to a situation of unequivocal instability,” the Sandinista government said.

The Ortega government ends its short statement with a “fervent call” for Thailand to restitute all constitutional guarantees and allow “dialogue and negotiation to prevail as the only possible way to find solutions and return this sister nation to normality and peace.”
