The Chamber of Senators Authorized Entry of US Troops to Paraguay

The Senate had called an extra session that had as a single item on the agenda the authorization for the temporary entry of 10 instructors of the 20th Special Operations Group of the United States of America.

The point was approved by most senators. However, the Guasu Front bench ruled against it and decided to leave the plenary.

After the point was approved, the extraordinary session of the Senate was adjourned.

The North American instructors will arrive in the country within the framework of the Joint Combined Exchange Training (JCET), in a plane of the US Air Force. They will be from August 11 to September 11, 2019.
