The chancellor thus officially confirmed the news that Belli herself had given to Radio Cooperative noting that “I have many friends and people I love in Chile and that is why I am going to take Chilean nationality. If there is another country that I feel with all my heart as close, it is Chile”.

He added that “Chile has a deep bond with Nicaragua, from Rubén Darío to Pablo Neruda, Nicanor Parra, Marcela Serrano, Carla Guelfenbein.” We Nicaraguans are going to continue fighting “for democracy, for freedom, we are not going to be intimidated and we are going to continue dreaming of a free country,” she added.
