This morning, Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa spoke behind closed doors at the Palacio de Carondelet with his Paraguayan counterpart, Fernando Lugo, to discuss issues about the bilateral and regional integration status within the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR).
The leaders are expected to sign a joint statement, while delegations from the two countries will sign seven agreements for cooperation on migration, trade, agriculture and energy, according to the ministry.
“We are convinced that a great new movement is generating in Latin America, with that spirit of innovation, to deepen the bonds of respect and solidarity,” said Lugo.
After his arrival on Saturday, the Paraguay leader began his activities this morning placing a wreath in honor of the heroes of independence in the main square (Quito).
Tomorrow, Lugo will visit the building of the General Secretariat of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), on the outskirts of Quito, and will move to the port of Guayaquil (southwest) to meet with business before returning to Asunción.
