The Ambassador of Equatorial Guinea in the Netherlands, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, has visited his Nicaraguan counterpart in The Hague, Carlos Argüello Gómez, to analyze the current context of justice and international organizations.
As dean of the Diplomatic Corps in the Dutch country and member of the United Nations International Law Commission (CDI), Argüello positions himself as a great expert on the international legal scene. For this reason, both Ambassadors have analyzed the modernization of the operation of international organizations based in The Hague. This important Dutch city is one of the headquarters of the United Nations Organization (UN) and hosts several of its institutions, including the International Court of Justice, based in the Peace Palace. But other major international organizations are also based in The Hague. This is the case of Eurojust, a body of the European Union made up of prosecutors, the European Police Office (Europol), the International Criminal Court (ICC), the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the International Criminal Court for former Yugoslavia (ICTY), among others.

Likewise, throughout the meeting, the two diplomats analyzed the upcoming election of the judge of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which will be voted on in New York next November, as well as the opening session of the Parliament of the Netherlands, which will take place on September 20. Ambassador Nvono-Ncá took advantage of this space to demand that the Hispanic and/or Ibero-American international organizations applaud the entry of Equatorial Guinea into their forums. “Equatorial Guinea has the legitimate right to request its entry in forums in which it is not yet present. We hope and wish that the respect we grant to the rest of the countries will be reciprocal for our benefit”, assured the Equatorial Guinean diplomat.
