Nicaragua has asked the European Union ambassador to leave the country after she was declared persona non grata, Reuters reported, citing diplomatic sources.

European Union ambassador Bettina Muscheidt has been summoned to the Foreign Ministry, where she was declared persona non grata and notified that she must leave the country, a diplomatic source said.

One source said the EU ambassador was asked to leave the country Wednesday, but two others did not specify a timeline for her departure.

The decision followed a European Union statement issued at the U.N. last week in which it called on the country's president to restore democracy. The statement went on to call for the release of political prisoners and respect for human rights.

Muscheidt was expelled in a vulgar way, tweeted former ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS) Arturo McFields, who left his post in March.
