    Background: MANAGUA AND OTHER LOCATIONS, NICARAGUA

    Nicaragua's large-scale rearmament and increasing ties with the Soviet Union and its allies has raised alarm in the United States. The recent French decision to sell arms to the Central American country has also aroused concern in Washington. Nicaragua is already receiving sophisticated weaponry from the Soviet bloc. The country's army is numbered at 23,000, augmented by a reported 1,500 Cuban advisors. Americans fear Nicaragua may be coming under increasing Communist influence and were concerned when delegations from the Soviet Union and Cuba attended a convention of the ruling Sandanistas.
