U.S. Ambassador to Paraguay Marc Ostfield ratified U.S. support for the Paraguayan National Anti-Drug Secretariat (SENAD) in a meeting with its Minister Zully Rolón at the institution’s headquarters in early July. The reunion reaffirmed the commitment of both countries in the fight against transnational organized crime, SENAD said via Twitter.
“We are pleased to always have the support, even more so, of the United States. Cooperation between the two countries in the fight against organized crime has been going on for three decades,” Special Agent Marcelo Paredes, general coordinator of SENAD’s Cabinet, on July 22. “This fight […] must be carried out among us all.”
