Russian MiG-29 to Appear in Nicaragua Sky
The authorities of Nicaragua intend to purchase the batch of fighters, including the Russian multi-purpose MiG-29, to combat drug trafficking in the coastal areas of the country. This was announced on Tuesday by the Brigadier General Adolfo Zepeda, a spokesman for the army of the Central American country.
“We intend to purchase military aircrafts which will be used solely for defensive purposes, not for air attack,” the Brigadier said. According to him, Nicaragua “is not going to create any military threat to its neighbors in the region”.
“The authorities of our country treat the provisions of international law with respect, and resolve differences with neighboring states on the basis of the verdicts of the International Court of Justice (ICJ),” he said.
