The British Government is following political developments in Paraguay closely.

Foreign and Commonwealth Office Officials have met with the Paraguayan ambassador in London to discuss the situation. We welcome the decision on 26 June by the Secretary General of the Organisation of American States (Jose Miguel Insulza) to travel to Paraguay to gather information on recent events and to report back to the organisation's Permanent Council next week.

The EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (Baroness Ashton) issued a statement expressing concern and calling on all parties to respect the democratic will of the Paraguayan people.
