It is true. For any geometrical object to be square, it should bave all sides equal and all four interior angles 90o each. But for rhombus all four sides are equal but not all 4 angles. Only the opposite angles are equal in rhombus.

In square all four sides are equal and also the oposite angles are equal (although two opposites are equal).

So the abouve expression is correct.
