With consolidation, all should stand against US sanctions and plots, Rezaei said at a meeting with Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, according to IRNA.
In his remarks, Rezaei said that the Iranian nation and government pay special respect to Nicaragua's resistance against excessive demands.
He stressed that independent countries should make further efforts to expand their relations because the bullying powers, particularly the United States, are after preventing nations’ development and cooperation.
He noted that the Islamic Republic of Iran has stood by Nicaragua and is ready to strengthen ties with the South American country.
For his part, the Nicaraguan president thanked Rezaei for attending his swearing-in ceremony and appreciated the strong spirit of the Islamic Republic against the enemies’ pressures.
Ortega, who was sworn into office for his fourth consecutive term on Monday, described relations between Nicaragua and Iran as deep and cordial.
The Nicaraguan president also said his country pays great respect to Iran’s top anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani who was assassinated by the US in Iraq in January, 2020.
Referring to the ongoing negotiations between Iran and remaining signatories to the 2015 nuclear agreement in the Austrian capital of Vienna, which are aimed at securing the removal of US sanctions, Ortega said Nicaragua supports Iran's right to use peaceful nuclear energy.
