Russia to arm and equip police in Nicaragua

Tuesday, October 2, 2012


Moscow says it is ready to supply equipment and weapons to Nicaragua as the global fight against drug production and smuggling continues.

Cooperation with the Central American country “comes down to the question of weapons, uniforms and police equipment,"Viktor Ivanov, head of the Federal Drug Control Service, said following negotiations with Nicaraguan police chief Aminta Granera in Moscow.

In February, officials from both countries agreed to conduct joint operations against drug trafficking and establish a drug enforcement training center in the Nicaraguan capital of Managua.
