FAO will be the international observer between the Government and the peasants in Paraguay

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) will exercise a monitoring and technical assistance role between the Government and the Paraguayan disagreements of both parties in the application of the peasant emergency law.

Asunción, Oct 25 (EFE) .- The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) will play a role of observation and technical assistance between the Government and the Paraguayan peasants to the disagreements of both sides in the application of the peasant emergency law.

The FAO representative in Paraguay, Rolf Hackbart, told Efe today that workers proposed to the UN agency to participate in the working table with the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG) to develop a list of small producers that

The agreement between MAG and the National Intersectoral Coordinator (CNI) was broken last week in the face of differences in official lists of registered peasants to receive food kits from the agricultural portfolio, a measure envisaged in the law.

"FAO has a technical cooperation role but also to facilitate dialogue. FAO could also participate with the assistance of technical assistance to check the data, verify them and organize them in order to get a census of peasants.

Also stressed the willingness to dialogue on both sides, after this meeting met representatives of the CNI with the new Minister of Agriculture and Livestock, Marcos Medina, who swore his job this week in place of Juan Carlos Baruja, who had led the negotiations so far.

"I am very optimistic. arranged a very quiet and pragmatic meeting. we have to be encouraged, "said the FAO representative.

Today's meeting, which was held at the seat of the Senate presidency in the presence of the head of the upper house, Fernando Lugo, served to lay the groundwork for the first working session proposed for next Monday.

CNI representative Jorge Galeano told Efe at the end of the meeting that for the peasants "the involvement of FAO in the negotiation process is very important."

"Negotiation is very political and sometimes when technical issues arise that impede the advance of a political agreement, the peasants are not technicians and we need third parties who can give the minimum guarantee to the process, "said Galeano.

" We bet the dialogue as element of solution and even more when it appears a collaboration of international organizations that finance programs here in the country in the field of peasant family farming, Galeano said that it was agreed to return to the figure of 54,000 beneficiaries of the National Emergency Law for the nearly 18,000 that had been determined so far by the MAG, had to break the negotiations again.

"The 54,000 that the minister said he has registered and numbered again to work from there try to get a reliable record which could serve us and the government, "Galeano concluded. Thousands of peasants camped for 37 days in downtown Asuncion demanding the emergency law, as well as forgiveness of their debts with private and public entities.
