Nicaraguan leader defends North Korea’s right to nuclear weapons

Daniel Ortega says US lacks ‘authority’ to tell DPRK or Iran that they cannot have the bomb

Nicaraguan leader Daniel Ortega defended North Korea’s right to pursue nuclear weapons during a meeting with the Iranian foreign ministry on Thursday, a video recording of the session shows.

Ortega said that while his country was not a “lover of the atomic weapon,” Western countries had no right to criticize nations like North Korea and Iran for seeking nuclear weapons.
