Bolivian Gov't criticized for abandoning its citizens in Chile
Santiago, Chile, Mar 31 (Prensa Latina) The head of National Defense in Tarapaca region, Guillermo Paiva, criticized the indolence of Bolivian authorities for abandoning its citizens stranded on the Chilean border.
The high-ranking officer noted that although at the Government and Foreign Ministry levels Bolivia had promised that its citizens could return home, minutes before leaving from the town of Huara, the Executive backed up and said that they would not be allowed to return home.
Paiva noted that 'I can only criticize the stubbornness and indolence of Bolivian authorities, because it is they that are not allowing their citizens to return to their country.' He added that President Jeanine Añez and Foreign Minister Karen Longaric 'are playing with the hopes of a group of Bolivians'.
The officer warned that those people 'are healthy, do not have any problem and the only thing they want is to be reunited with their families and return to their homeland'.
Since last week, some 150 Bolivians have been stranded on the Chilean border, because the Bolivian Government refuses to ease the border closure as a measure against the coronavirus.
