News Team

The Government of Paraguay has expressed its support for Chile in light of the tragic fires that have devastated the Valparaíso region. The fires, which began on Friday, have already claimed the lives of 46 people and have caused widespread destruction.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Paraguay took to its social media account to send a message of solidarity and support to the people and government of Chile. They also extended their condolences to the families of the victims and offered words of strength to those affected by the fires.

Chile is currently facing one of the deadliest waves of fires in recent history, with the death toll almost doubling that of last year’s fires. President Gabriel Boric has warned that the number of fatalities is expected to increase in the coming hours.

At present, there are at least four large active fires in the Valparaíso region, with two in the coastal city of Viña del Mar and two in the towns of Quilpué and Quillota. The fires, which began in the densely populated hills surrounding Viña del Mar, have spread to industrial sectors, leading to explosions in chemical warehouses and other facilities.

The devastating impact of the fires has caused widespread concern and has prompted neighboring countries, including Paraguay, to offer their support to Chile during this difficult time. The international community has also expressed its solidarity with Chile and has offered assistance in combating the fires and providing aid to those affected.

As the fires continue to rage, the focus remains on containing the spread and minimizing further loss of life and property. Efforts are underway to mobilize resources and support from both within Chile and from international partners to address the immediate and long-term impact of the fires.

The situation in Chile serves as a stark reminder of the devastating effects of natural disasters and the importance of international cooperation in times of crisis. The outpouring of support from Paraguay and other countries is a testament to the spirit of solidarity and unity in the face of adversity.

As the fires in Chile continue to pose a threat to the region, the global community stands ready to offer assistance and support to help the country recover and rebuild. The road ahead may be long and challenging, but with the collective efforts of the international community, Chile will be able to overcome this tragedy and emerge stronger than before.
