“We see Costa Rica as a leader in the region,” said the U.S. diplomat.

Biden was responsible to lead the U.S. relations with Central America, “has visited the northern triangle … and got approval to invest US$750 million dollars in the region,” said Haney.

With respect to Nicaragua, the recent news confirming the purchase of Russian military equipment and the re-election bid of President Daniel Ortega, Haney said, “what concerns us great is the direction of democracy in Nicaragua. The end of freedom in the face of the elections.”

“Maybe (Costa Rica and Nicaragua) will not be best friends overnight, but it is important to strengthen economic, trade, security and migration, ‘deepen relations’ between the two countries,” added the Ambassador.
