MANAGUA, January 14. /TASS/. Russia will continue to offer humanitarian assistance and technical aid to Nicaragua, speaker of Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house Valentina Matviyenko said on Wednesday at a meeting with Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.
Matviyenko reminded that last year Russia had delivered 25 tonnes of wheat to Nicaragua as humanitarian aid. Apart from that, it had supplied 200 tractors and ten combine harvesters to Nicaragua.
Apart from that, she said the Russian finance ministry was looking at issuing Russian government guarantees to secure Nicaragua’s top priority projects that would be determined by its president.
Matviyenko commended achievements of that Latin American country. “Despite the problems, we see that Nicaragua is developing as modern society, its economy and social sphere are developing, people’s wealth is growing and we are sincerely glad to see it,” she said.
