A senior Paraguayan official was fired after signing a cooperation memorandum with a country he has since learned does not exist.
Arnaldo Chamorro told reporters he was dismissed from his job as chief of staff to the agriculture minister after signing the document with purported officials from the "United States of Kailasa".
"They (the "officials") came and expressed a wish to help Paraguay. They presented several projects, we listened to them and that was that," he said, admitting to having been fooled.
Chamorro said the fake officials also met his minister Carlos Gimenez. Their motive was not known. The memorandum signed by the two parties had envisaged the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two "countries."
