Argentina Will Probe Charges That Its Military Smuggled Weapons to Brazil

The Argentinean government will help Brazil in the clarification of accusations concerning the supposed involvement of Air Force officers from that country and other South American countries in the trafficking of arms into Brazil.

This assurance came Thursday, February 23, from the Argentinean ambassador, Juan Pablo Lohlé, after a meeting with the president of the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies, Aldo Rebelo (PCdoB party, São Paulo).

Lohlé informed that Argentina possesses internal security mechanisms and a good relationship with neighboring countries to combat arms trafficking and other kinds of crime. "Our commitment is to clear this situation up," he affirmed.

According to the ambassador, the Argentinean representative on the multilateral commission coordinated by the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Relations to look into the charges made by members of the Parliamentary Investigatory Commission (CPI) on Arms Trafficking will be a member of the Security Department of his country’s Ministry of the Interior. The first meeting of the commission is expected to take place soon after Carnaval, which ends March 1st.

At his meeting with the president of the Chamber, Lohlé discussed the gathering of representatives of Mercosur parliaments scheduled for March 25-27, in Buenos Aires.

"The idea of a Commission of Representatives of Mercosur Parliaments is to commemorate a Mercosur social event, because the Mercosur is not only a matter of trade but of political and social relations as well," the ambassador remarked. He said that Rebelo promised to attend the event.
