CWN Editor's Note: Denis Moncada, Nicaragua’s foreign minister, recently visited the Vatican to seek the removal of some bishops from the panel brokering the national dialogue between the regime and the opposition. Citing an anonymous diplomatic source, the Havana Times reported that the Vatican rejected the Ortega regime’s request for a meeting between Moncada and Pope Francis or Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin. Instead, Moncada reportedly met with a mid-level Vatican official who voiced strong support for the nation’s bishops.
