Nicaragua to re-establish ties with DPRK

According to Deutsch Press Agentur:

Nicaragua on Tuesday announced plans to re- establish diplomatic relations with North Korea.

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega met Tuesday in Managua with Kim Hyong Jun, North Korean deputy foreign minister.

During the 1980s, when Ortega and his Sandinista Party ruled Nicaragua, his leftwing government was aligned with the Soviet Union and had formal ties with North Korea, which is still ruled by a Stalinist regime.

Ortega lost democratic elections in 1990 and spent decades in opposition until winning the presidency in 2006. Since regaining power, he has again groomed renewed relations with communist Cuba and with Russia and other former Soviet states.
