At the military parade for the 43rd anniversary of the Nicaraguan Army, Ortega said that the preparation and fidelity of the armed entity allows it to work safely and develop education, health, national and foreign investments, and the deployment of different social programs.
“Our armed institutions are to protect peace in Nicaragua, to defend peace, not to attack anyone,” declared the president during the parade called “People-Army.”
In his speech he recalled the progress they have experienced since 2007 in the construction of roads, bridges, hospitals, housing and schools.
Later he acknowledged that in 2018 several economic and social projects were delayed “because there are a few who do not want Nicaragua’s progress,” referring to the disturbances caused by internal and external opposition forces.
“Neither the coup nor terrorism managed to stop the spirit of work of Nicaraguans,” the president concluded.
