Paraguayan Gov't Is Still Isolated
Asuncion, Jul 14.- The Paraguayan government imposed after the Congress removed Constitutional President Fernando Lugo from office has not found a solution to the international isolation of the country.
Despite all efforts, including an extensive propaganda campaign and clear support from the United States, the current administration of Federido Franco has not been recognized by many nations and regional organizations.
The stance against the parliamentary coup that removed Lugo from office and the political sanctions applied by the Southern Common Market and the Union of South American Nations were unalterable, as agreed in the Summits of heads of State and Government of those integration blocs.
The ambassadors from the members countries of those organizations and from many other States with diplomatic relations with Paraguay were called by their governments and left Asuncion to protest against Lugo's overthrow.
A public statement by incumbent Paraguayan Foreign Minister Jose Felix Fernandez Estigarribia was eloquent. He told the press that he could not talk with his South American peers, because they simply did not answer his telephone calls, due to their refusal to recognize Franco's government.
The week ended without the Organization of American States setting a date for a new meeting, at which a definitive resolution on the situation in Paraguay should be adopted. (Prensa Latina)
