According to a note from the Foreign Ministry, Cafiero received Acevedo the day before in a meeting in which they shared views on the need to strengthen Mercosur, with emphasis on the task that Paraguay will soon carry out as president pro tempore of the bloc.

Both parties agreed that the review of the Common External Tariff is a central element for the updating of this regional alliance, taking into account the requirements and needs of the member states, based on consensus, in accordance with the letter and spirit of the founding texts.

During the meeting, the officials resolved to open the border crossings with the Argentine provinces of Formosa, Misiones and Corrientes as soon as possible, which will be opened progressively, respecting sanitary regulations, and highlighted the joint work for the habilitation of safe sanitary corridors.

On the other hand, they stressed the need to work together against organized crime and drug trafficking and agreed to deepen cooperation for the exchange of technology and experiences to reinforce the shared security agenda.

Other issues include the early realization of the Bilateral Trade Monitoring Commission meeting and a project to interconnect the fiber optic networks of each country to the points where international internet providers are located.
