US Trade Minister to postpone visit to Nicaragua

US Minister of Trade Carlos Gutierrez has postponed a visit to Nicaragua. “The Minister has postponed the visit planned for September 28-30, because of the changing situation in Nicaragua”, the US Ambassador to Nicaragua, Robert Callahan, has declared.

Callahan refrained from answering the question whether postponing the visit was connected with Nicaragua’s recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. He confirmed however that the US State Department’s position is that recognition of the independence of these regions was an abrogation of several UN Security Council resolutions.
