Brazilian State Seeks Closer Ties with Paraguay

ASUNCION – The governor of the Brazilian state of Parana met on Monday with Paraguayan President Mario Abdo Benitez to establish “a great partnership” between the two territories, which share the Parana River.

Maria Aparecida Borghetti told reporters that she and Abdo Benitez discussed cooperation, economic and social development, border security and the construction of a second bridge spanning the Parana.

“We talked about the second bridge,” the governor said. “We spoke of bringing the rivers back to life and the production of grains and fish.”

Borghetti also shared with the president her state’s success in using helicopters to disrupt cross-border smuggling of guns and illegal drugs.

On the topic of infrastructure, the governor mentioned the proposed bridge that will link Foz da Iguaçu, Brazil, with Presidente Franco, Paraguay.

“The negotiations are quite advanced, with all the permits, resources and guarantees,” Borghetti said, adding that both sides are interested in building a third bridge.

Joining Abdo Benitez and Borghetti for the meeting was Paraguayan Foreign Minister Luis Alberto Castiglioni, who is set to travel to Brasilia on Tuesday to meet with Brazilian counterpart Aloyso Nunes.
