Protesters in Nicaragua have been demonstrating against President Daniel Ortega since April.
"With each passing day, Nicaragua travels down a familiar path. It is a path that Syria has taken, it is a path that Venezuela has taken," said U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
News agency EFE spoke with the leader of Nicaragua, a nation embroiled in a socio-political crisis.
Several reporters have been captured and assaulted during the protests in Nicaragua, in which, to date, 317 to 448 people have lost their lives.
During the march on Saturday, which had been called by the government to demand justice for the victims of the crisis over the past three months, protesters expressed their backing for what they are calling a "revolutionary process headed by Comandante Daniel Ortega."
The Central American nation is in a prolonged political crisis that has so far claimed between 277 and 351 lives in three months.
President Daniel Ortega says Nicaragua's constitution does not allow for the 2021 elections to be held early.
Since mid-April, the Central American country has suffered violence and repression at the hands of security agents of President Daniel Ortega’s administration.
Desde mediados de abril, el país centroamericano sufre violentas jornadas de represión a manos de agentes de seguridad del Gobierno de Daniel Ortega.
On Saturday, protesters gathered in Niquinohomo, Nicaragua, calling for justice for those who have died in the country's protests since April 18.
