Nicaragua rejects 'criminal state' label by Costa Rica
Thursday's closing arguments at the International Court of Justice ended with tensions after Costa Rica accused Nicaragua of being a criminal nation and Nicaragua mocked Costa Rica for having a loser government.
“In my 30 years of experience working before the Court, my country has never been referred to in such undiplomatic terms as a repeat offender or a criminal state,” Nicaraguan Ambassador Carlos Argüello told the Court during his closing remarks.
“In recent years, the Government of Nicaragua has been classified among the 25% best governments and is fourth among 19 governments polled in Latin America," Argüello said.
