MEXICO CITY, November 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Nicaragua’s parliament ratified the government’s decision allowing Russian military units, planes and ships to visit the Central American country.
The voting took place at an urgent request of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.
Under the document, ships and planes of Russia, Cuba, Mexico and Venezuela will be able to visit Nicaragua in the first half of 2014. Their crews are allowed to participate “in exchange of experience and training” of Nicaragua’s servicemen.
Moreover, Russian servicemen together with Nicaragua’s armed forces will take part in a joint patrolling of the republic’s territorial waters in the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean from January 1 to June 30, 2014.
The main task of these operations is to fight drug trafficking. The US servicemen were issued a similar permit.
