On June 22

On this day in ...
... 1966 (45 years ago today), following intense negotiations, Brazil and Paraguay signed the Act of de Iguazu, respecting hydroelectric development along the Río Paraná, which forms a border between the 2 countries. In 1984, operations would begin for the Itaipú Dam (above) that spans the river. (photo credit)
