>The fact that the paleo-Stalinist state of North Korea (DPRK) would endorse the second presidency of Daniel Ortega indicates that the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) has not reformed but is still committed to furthering world revolution. As a matter of tactics, communist governments only endorse other communist governments, or non-communist governments that are in some way advancing the communist agenda of total control.

Pyongyang announces “a more active” fight to obtain unity with Latin America
The vice chancellor of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea for Latin America and the Middle East, Kim Hyong Jun, announced today in Managua that he will fight in a more active form to create unity with Latin America and to construct a “new world”

“From now on we are going to fight more actively to create unity with the Nicaraguan people and all Latin America, to construct a new world: independent, friendly, and peaceful,” the vice chancellor of Pyongyang said in a press conference at the headquartes of the Sandinista party, that controls the reins of government.
Kim Hyong Jun, who makes an official three-day visit to Nicaragua, praised the president of this country, Daniel Ortega, for his “efforts” in favor of the Central American and Latin American unity.
He reiterated his congratulations to Nicaragua for being chosen this past Thursday to be a member of the Council of Human Rights of the General Assembly of the United Nations for the period between 2007-2010.
He indicated that between both countries there was “a long history of friendship” that goes back to the time of the dictatorship of Somoza (1937-1979) when the DPRK supported the Sandinista guerrillas.
“Both peoples are fighting against the policy of the abuse and the hegemony that our enemy wants to take from the international scene,” he declared.
For his side, the Nicaraguan President emphasized the “new stage” of relations with North Korea, a country which he praised for defending its interests “with its own forces” and arms.
He [Ortega] confirmed that the communist regime of Pyongyang supported the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) during the fight against the dictatorship of Somoza. During the first Sandinista government (1979-1990) the relations between both countries “were multiplied in all the fields.”
Ortega twice traveled to Pyongyang on official visits in his previous mandate. He said that he will explore ways of cooperating with [North] Korea in areas of industry, medicine, education, culture, energy, and defense.

Meanwhile, Tomas Borge–only surviving FSLN founder, Maoist, Castro worshipper, KGB stooge, Interior Minister under first Sandinista regime, and now Nicaragua’s ambassador to Peru–castigates the USA for imposing its 40-year blockade against Cuba. In doing so Borge is carrying out the stated intentions of the neo-Sandinista regime to support communist Cuba on every issue and in every international forum. Borge is married to a Peruvian woman, the stated reason for which he requested his official placement in that country.
Nicaraguan ambassador repudiates blockade against Cuba
Lima – the ambassador of Nicaragua in Peru, Tomás Borge, described today as cruel and foolish the blockade of the United States against Cuba
20 May 2007 21:31:52
In an interview with the Limean newspaper Peru 21, Borge stated his repudiation of US President George W. Bush due to actions like the war against Iraq.
The founder of the Sandinista National Liberation Front of Nicaragua declared: “I repudiate the foolish and cruel economic blockade that he [Bush] maintains against Cuba.”
“I do not hate Bush because I have exiled the hatred of my heart, but I repudiate him with scorn,” he stated.
In another passage of the long interview Borge indicated that the ex-president of Argentina, Carlos Menem, is “a mentiroso, a demagogue, a politiquero” and confirmed his admiration of the Cuban chief executive, Fidel Castro, who, he said, taught to him not to lie.
He denied on the other hand that his work as ambassador in Peru marks his retirement from political activity and clarified that he requested the position for family reasons.
