Bolivia, Paraguay Celebrate Peace Accord

16La Paz, Jun 12 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian and Paraguayan Minister of Defense will meet at the Bolivian city of Villa Montes on Saturday to celebrate the 75 anniversary of the Peace Agreement signed after the Chaco War (1932-1935).

  First it was expected Presidents Evo Morales and Fernando Lugo to be met in Asuncion, but their international commitments prevented the meeting.

Ruben Saavedra and Luis Bareiro will take the meeting to show fraternity and solidarity between the both countries despite the opposition attempt to divide them.

The meeting is expected to be held on Saturday morning Villa Montes, located in the southern department of Tarija, about 105 miles from La Paz and near Paraguayan border.

Paraguay and Bolivia signed a protocol for peace in Buenos Aires Argentina, which two days later put an end to the bloody Chaco War, in which more than 50,000 Bolivians and many Paraguayans died.
