Also, the Alvarado administration is pleased that the Episcopal Conference of Nicaragua is guarantor in the dialogue process, though the time and place have yet to be defined by Nicaragua’s President Daniel Ortega.

“Costa Rica is in solidarity with the brotherly people of Nicaragua and regrets that the fundamental aspects related to the dignity and physical security of the current events generate the loss of human lives and injury to people,” the statement reads.

More than 50 people have lost their lives in Nicaragua since the clashes between the university students and riot-police began on April 18. No officials numbers are available, the Nicaragua media such as El Nuevo Diario and 100% Noticias place the number, including the violence during this weekend, at 52.

Costa Rica’s vice-president and Chancellor Epsy Campbell spoke about her interest in maintaining good relations with Nicaragua even before taking office.

“We have to establish the diplomatic channels in the best possible way so that our interventions are not taken as interventions that, rather, attempt against the reality of the brotherly Nicaraguan country,” said Campbell on April 26.

Last Wednesday, the Nicaraguan ambassador to Costa Rica was mobbed outside the Nicaragua embassy as he and his wife were leaving the diplomatic mission located on the east side of San Jose. A group of protesters outside the embassy shouted at the pair: “assassins, assassins!”.
