On Monday, the Nicaraguan government demanded that the opposition take the negotiating table seriously and responsibly, following the recent violent protest that had not been authorized.
In a statement, the delegation of the Government of Reconciliation and National Unity called on the opposition counterpart to show "a sincere commitment to talk and reach positive agreements for Nicaragua."

He also rejected the "inconceivable, contradictory and unusual attitude of participants of this table, which on Saturday, March 16, were part of a provocation and disturbance of public order against the safety of Nicaraguan families, who have the right to tranquility and peace".
Vice President Rosario Murillo said that the Government has the "sincere commitment to agree on what is best for Nicaragua," which is "precisely the peace we must follow, the good we want to do, justice."
She reiterated that the objective is "to build, to construct peace (...) to continue walking with the good course that we had and that we will have again because God has so arranged."
On March 16, the National Police (PN) of Nicaragua reported the release of 107 people detained that day in an unauthorized march in Managua, capital of the country. This had been convened by the opposition coalition National Unity Blue and White and resulted in riots.
The negotiating table was reinstated on March 14 between the government of President Daniel Ortega and the grouped opposition in the Civic Alliance. However, the Blue and White National Unity does not recognize these dialogues and continues its agenda.
