The Deputy Secretary indicated that they are working with several countries to establish the principles of the Declaration and ensure its effective implementation. He highlighted collaboration in building these principles, the commitment to their application by the signing countries, and the exchange of information on potential threats.
Paul Dean’s visit not only reflects the ongoing interest of the United States in strengthening collaboration with Paraguay on security and military technology issues but also highlights the positive opportunities that adopting the Declaration on the Responsible Use of Artificial Intelligence could offer South American countries.
