Abstract: Paraguay's President Nicanor Duarte pressed Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva to renegotiate the terms that dictate how power from a shared dam is handled. Paraguayan officials and media want the tiny country to earn more from the Itaipu dam, the world's largest functioning hydroelectric generator, than it currently gains under terms set by a 1973 agreement. Duarte's calls met little response from Lula during the Brazilian president's first official visit to Paraguay since coming to office in 2003. Duarte's "weak" approach to Lula and failure to gain any concessions earned him the scorn of Paraguayan media and opposition leaders.
