Dear Mr. President:

Congratulations on receiving the Shalom Prize from the Latin American Jewish Congress. Your contributions in building coexistence in Paraguay and abroad are truly extraordinary, and you are well deserving of this award.

We commend you for your constant support of dialogue and negotiation in the Middle East, for standing up to hate and bigotry in Latin America, and for your steadfast friendship with the United States, the State of Israel, and the Jewish community of Paraguay.

We hope to meet with you again at this year’s United Nations General Assembly or in other international forums. We look forward to working with your government on issues of mutual concern, responding to all forms of discrimination, and promoting and maintaining strong Paraguayan relations with the United States and the State of Israel.

Please be assured of our highest personal regard for the Government and people of Paraguay.
