STORYLINE
UN Secretary-General António Guterres met this afternoon (19 Jul) with Denis Ronaldo Moncada Colindres, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Nicaragua in New York.

Earlier this week, Guterres condemned the ongoing violence against civilians, including against students, in Nicaragua. In a statement read on Monday by UN deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq, Guterres said the use of lethal force was not only unacceptable but was also in itself an obstacle to obtaining a political solution to the current crisis. He called on the Nicaraguan Government to provide effective protection to its population against attacks, ensure respect for human rights and establish accountability for the violence.

According to media reports, at least 10 people were shot dead in Nicaragua on Sunday as police and paramilitary groups supporting the government, sought to remove roadblocks set up by anti-government demonstrators, who have been demanding that President Daniel Ortega step down.
