Paraguay Receives Donation of Fire Engines from South Korea

ASUNCION – South Korea’s Association of Retired Firefighters donated on Friday five fire engines and an ambulance to Paraguay.

Some 60 members of Paraguay’s Corps of Volunteer Firefighters lined up their yellow trucks along Asuncion’s Palma Street, in front of the foreign ministry, where the modern red trucks from the Asian country were already awaiting them.

The volunteers climbed onto the trucks to take pictures before the surprised gaze of street vendors and passers-by.

The donation was marked by an official event with Foreign Minister Eladio Loizaga and South Korea’s ambassador to Paraguay, Ahn Min-sik.

Hailing the donation of the fire trucks, Ahn pointed out that South Korea supports “various cooperation projects with Paraguay in areas such as public health, infrastructure and development.”

“Korea and Paraguay are ready to extend the horizon of cooperation to another level in the coming years,” the envoy said.

Also present for event was the commander of the Gwangju, South Korea fire department, Kim Jo-il.

“The donation of five fire engines, an ambulance and 13 rescue kits holds great meaning,” as it coincides with the 56th anniversary of the start of diplomatic relations between South Korea and Paraguay, Kim said.
