Paraguayan Agriculture Minister Arnaldo Chamorro signed agreements with a fictional country invented by an Indian "guru" who is on the run from a series of sexual abuse allegations. In this regard, the official resigned, reports The Telegraph.

He claims that he was tricked into signing a "memorandum of understanding" with representatives of the non-existent United States of Kailasa.

The United States of Kailasa is widely represented on the Internet, but it is not and never has been a sovereign state and does not appear to occupy an inch of physical territory.

It is led by a self-styled Hindu mystic and fraudster named Swami Nithyananda, who has been on the run from rape and sexual assault charges in India since 2019. He has previously claimed to be able to see through walls, delay sunrises, and make cows speak Sanskrit. His whereabouts are unknown.

On his website, the fictional country of the United States of Kailasa is described as a "revival of the ancient enlightened Hindu civilizational nation which is being revived by displaced Hindus from around the world."

All of this did not prevent Minister Chamorro from entering into a diplomatic dialogue with representatives of the fictional place, along with Agriculture Minister Carlos Gimenez. The agreement he signed expresses a "sincere wish and recommendation for the government of Paraguay to consider, explore, and actively seek the establishment of diplomatic relations with the United States of Kailasa".

The document, bearing the letterhead of the Ministry and the official seal, also pledged to "support the admission of the United States of Kailasa as a sovereign and independent state in various international organizations, including, among others, the United Nations."
