Nicaragua has recalled its ambassadors in Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Costa Rica for “consultations,” the Nicaraguan government announced on Monday.

The recall comes in response to similar measures by the four countries against Nicaragua, the government of President Daniel Ortega said in a statement released by state media.

Mexico, Argentina and Colombia recently recalled their ambassadors following the Ortega government’s crackdown on opposition figures and presidential candidates, while Costa Rica suspended the nomination a few weeks ago of its ambassador in the country, according to Reuters.

Dozens of opposition leaders and presidential candidates have been arrested since early June in Nicaragua as the government rounded up individuals it accused of plotting a coup against Ortega.
