Nicaragua’s delegation will feature ministers of industry and finance, he said.
“The meeting will continue the earlier series of meetings between representatives of the two countries,” he said. “I hope we shall continue the approaches, which will bring practical results.”
“We expect to finalise by the yearend the technical aspects of the canal’s construction, which will be a mega project for Nicaragua’s economy,” the deputy foreign minister said in an interview with ITAR-TASS. “The most important issue we are facing now is the environmental risks. We hope they will be minimal.”
“We hope Russian companies will also participate in the project,” he said. “We are interested in that.”
Nicaragua’s deputy foreign minister said the agenda will also include cooperation in agricultural engineering, “which is very important for Nicaragua,” grain supplies from Russia to Nicaragua, as well as cooperation in production and supplies of vaccines.
The Nicaragua Canal (also referred to as the Nicaragua Grand Canal or the Nicaragua Interoceanic Grand Canal) is a proposed shipping route through Nicaragua to connect the Caribbean Sea (and therefore the Atlantic Ocean) with the Pacific Ocean. Construction of such a shipping route - using the San Juan River as an access route to Lake Nicaragua - was first proposed in the early colonial era.
