Asuncion_ The denied involvement of Paraguayan Foreign Minister Eladio Loizaga in the ''Condor Plan'' is contradicted by a document of the Truth and Justice Commission of his country, published CubaSí.

The note points out how Loizaga tried to defend himself on Monday from the accusations of his counterpart in Venezuela, Delcy Rodriguez.

The Venezuelan minister said that he was part of that operation to coordinate actions of repression and mutual support between the leaderships of the dictatorial regimes of the Southern Cone of America with the United States during the 1970s and 1980s.

According to the newspaper, Loizaga said to be 12 years old at the time, but he actually was from 26 to 31 during the period of greatest growth of the Condor Plan, as he was born on March 17, 1949, and was in the Foreign Ministry as official.

To expose Loizaga's contradiction on the issue, the newspaper report refers to documents of the Truth and Justice Commission, created at the request of the civil society to the Congress after the fall of the dictatorship of Alfredo Stroessner (1954-1989).

One of those texts mentions Loizaga as one of the promoters and partners in drawing up the preparatory act of the 12th Latin American Anticommunist Congress from 1979.

It also points him out as part of the then-World Anti-Communist League.

Also, according to this Commission, the now minister began his career during the dictatorial regime as a Foreign Service officer.

He was then private secretary of President Andres Rodriguez (1989-1993), who led the coup that toppled Stroessner.

Delcy Rodríguez assured last Friday how the chancellor plays a sad role in the South Common Market (Mercosur), in reference to what the Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro described as triple alliance among Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina.

The governments of those three nations carry out a campaign against Caracas, aimed at avoiding the Bolivarian country to assume the pro tempore presidency corresponding for right in Mercosur.
