Nicaragua’s government on Thursday ordered the withdrawal of its ambassador to Spain due to “continuous pressure and threats of interference” against him.

“The Government of Reconciliation and National Unity of the Republic of Nicaragua, through its Ministry of Foreign Affairs, informs the Foreign Ministry of the Kingdom of Spain of its decision to remove Ambassador Carlos Midence from his duties,” the country’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“This decision responds to the continuous pressure and interventionist threats on our ambassador, which make the exercise of diplomatic work impossible,” it added.

The ministry did not elaborate on the kind of pressure and interference it was referring to.

Spain recalled its ambassador to Nicaragua in August 2021 after the Central American country accused Madrid of meddling in domestic politics.
