Nicaragua Drops Rebel Demand

November 15, 1989| From Times Wire Services and

WASHINGTON — The Nicaraguan government, in a bid to break an impasse in negotiations with the Contras, has dropped its demand for the immediate demobilization of the rebels, a Sandinista official said today.

Vice Foreign Minister Victor Hugo Tinoco said the government instead is insisting, as its price for a restoration of a cease-fire, the evacuation of the rebels from Nicaraguan territory to Contra base camps in Honduras.

"We think that is a very important change in our position," Tinoco told a news conference at the Nicaraguan Embassy.
