The Wall Street Journal reported that on July 21, the office of the U.S. trade representative should issue a list of sugar import quotas for the next fiscal year. Nicaragua was not mentioned in the documents known to the newspaper.
It is worth noting that the United States allows some countries to supply a certain amount of sugar with relatively low tariffs.
In June, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega allowed foreign military personnel, including Russian soldiers, to temporarily exist in the country for humanitarian purposes. In the same month, the United States confirmed that it would not invite Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua to the summit of the Americas. Since then, many leaders, including the presidents of Mexico and Bolivia, refused to attend the event.
