Nicaragua, one of the Central American countries, broke off relations with the Netherlands, which it accuses of “neo-colonial and interventionist behavior and constantly insulting the people of the country” after the USA.

Daniel Ortega’s government, which announced last Friday that it would not allow the US Ambassador to Managua to enter the country, declared the Dutch Ambassador “persona non grata”.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Nicaragua said in a statement that the Dutch ambassador to Central America, Christine Pirenne, addressed the public “as if Nicaragua was a Dutch colony” during her visit to Managua last Thursday.
