The United States congratulates the people of Paraguay on successfully holding free and fair elections on April 30. We congratulate President-elect Santiago Peña on his victory in the election. We applaud the efforts of the Superior Court of Electoral Justice and the work of international observation missions.

We look forward to working with President-elect Peña and his government to advance common interests like fighting corruption and impunity and advancing security and economic growth for the benefit of both our countries. Our common interests and shared democratic values will continue to underpin the historic partnership between the people of Paraguay and the United States.
