Paraguay Signs Pact with UN to Battle Arms Trafficking

ASUNCION – The United Nations will train public servants involved in the fight against arms trafficking in Paraguay under a cooperation protocol signed Thursday by Foreign Minister Luis Castiglioni and a UN official.

The accord calls for the UN to provide the technical means needed for the training, while the government of Paraguay will supply the funding.

The initiative “will strengthen the capabilities” of the government in the battle against the “scourge” of arms trafficking, the minister said.

Castiglioni said that the agreement will contribute to “the fight against transnational crime and all its related offenses,” which he described as a priority for the government of President Mario Abdo Benitez.

The UN interim representative in Paraguay, Regina Castillo, pointed out the importance of a country’s having qualified public servants to combat arms trafficking, “whose networks are more sophisticated every day and operate across porous borders.”
