During the tribute, the Taiwanese ambassador, who in recent years has been accustomed to launching projects and appearing in propaganda media images of Ortega Murillo’s dictatorship, said he is a few days away from ending his diplomatic mission in the country, but also his career abroad.
The nationalization of both citizens was announced less than 24 hours after Foreign Minister Denis Moncada announced the severing of diplomatic relations with the Asian island.
Twenty-four days ago, on November 16, Moncada awarded the Order of José de Marcoleta, the degree of the Grand Cross, to Qin Mu Wu.

Vice President and spokesperson, Rosario Murillo, celebrated the decision on Friday. “He reiterated the historical bond not only between governments, but from parties, the FSLN and the Chinese Communist Party” and added that “China is a superpower that is admired all over the world.”
The signing of the document resuming diplomatic relations with mainland China was in charge of Lauriano Ortega Murillo, son of Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo and Presidential Adviser on Investments, Trade and International Cooperation, who arrived from Russia to China to sign with him. China advisor, Ma Zhaoxu.
The document was signed in Tianjin, and in addition to Ortega Murillo, the delegation consists of his older brother, Rafael Ortega Murillo, a presidential delegate, and Ivan Acosta, Minister of Finance and Public Credit, according to information from official media.
