ASUNCION - Brazil said on Saturday it had called back its ambassador to Paraguay for consultations over former Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo's ouster on Friday after a lightning-quick trial that prompted criticism abroad.

The Brazilian Foreign Ministry announced the move in a statement and said that democracy was essential to regional integration. Brazil is Paraguay's top trading partner and Latin America's biggest economy.
