Managua (Agenzia Fides) - The President of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, has received the letter on behalf of the Bishops of the Episcopal Conference of Nicaragua (CEN), which states that the Church is ready to dialogue with the government (see Fides 18/03/2014).
The short note sent to Fides Agency informs that the Auxiliary Bishop of Managua, His Exc. Mgr. Silvio Baez, confirmed that the letter was sent to the President in the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 18.
The first opportunity for dialogue between the Church and Ortega was in December 2013, when the President had lunch with the Bishops at the Apostolic Nunciature (see Fides 12/04/2013). On that occasion also Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez, Archbishop of Santo Domingo, and Archbishop Fortunatus Nwachukwu, Apostolic Nuncio in Nicaragua were present.
