PARAMARIBO, Suriname (AP) — Paraguay is being welcomed back into a group of South American nations known as UNASUR.
The country was officially reinstated during a yearly summit held Friday in Suriname. UNASUR had temporarily suspended Paraguay after it impeached its president.
Leaders at the summit expected to talk about issues such as tourism and economic cooperation.
Attendees included Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. Leaders of Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Colombia sent delegations to represent them.
The official welcome by Suriname President Desi Bouterse was delayed by several hours following the arrest of his son, Dino Bouterse, who faces U.S. drug and weapon charges.
Dino Bouterse pleaded not guilty in a New York federal court on Friday.
