Paraguay President Visits His Nationís Troops in Port-au-Prince

PORT-AU-PRINCE Ė Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo arrived Saturday in Port-au-Prince on a brief visit that will allow him to meet with troops from his country on humanitarian duty as part of the United Nations Mission for the Stabilization of Haiti, or Minustah.

The South American president is scheduled to return to his country later Saturday, after spending three days in Cuba, where he was treated for tendinitis of the left foot, caused by an osteomuscular complaint.

Lugo, 60, is visiting the Paraguayan troops on the bicentennial of his nationís independence.

Paraguayan troops serving with Minustah are made up of 92 soldiers, most of them engineers performing a series of tasks in Port-au-Prince, devastated by an earthquake on Jan. 12, 2010, which left 316,000 dead, more than 300,000 injured and 1.6 million displaced persons.

The Paraguayan president is in the process of recuperating from lymphatic cancer, for which he was treated in Brazil and Paraguay.
