Then the leadership of the Republic of Nicaragua supported the people of South Ossetia, our fight against the Georgian fascism and the legitimate right to have our own statehood.

This is a significant event that cannot be overestimated in the history and fate of our people. And today we are very pleased that you are with us. On behalf of the President and the Government of the Republic, I express my deep gratitude to the esteemed President Daniel Ortega, Vice President and you for sharing this holiday with us.
