Statement on the House of Representatives Disapproval of Aid to the Nicaraguan Democratic Resistance

 

March 3, 1988

 

The House has once again failed to approve an aid package for the Nicaraguan democratic resistance. I call on the House and Senate to act urgently to develop an aid package which is effectively deliverable and of sufficient quantity to sustain the Nicaraguan freedom fighters. If not, the prospects for peace and democracy inside Nicaragua will diminish quickly.
