Julio De Vido: “There is no agreement to make missiles in Venezuela, and less with Iran”
February 18, 2013
Planning minister Julio De Vido said, “there is no agreement with Venezuela to manufacture missiles, much less with Iran.”
He put it this way, referring to a story published Sunday in the daily La Nación, which refers to an alleged agreement with a Venezuelan company.
“It is completely unreasonable and perverse actually think that our country signed an agreement with Iran to further clarify the brutal attack on the AMIA because it would have hidden a draft missiles through Venezuela,” the minister said.
He also stressed: “We are a sovereign country that does not ask permission to exercise their right to develop the technology to be appropriate, provided under the rules and regimes, in which Argentina is active, and the agreements we signed, not imposed on us.”
He recalled that “agreements between Military Industries (Armed Forces) and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela are in the framework of joint cooperation between the two countries and linked to the construction of a treatment plant and recovery of arrears and other projectiles ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer and input of the mining industry, so that the construction of missiles is not part of that agenda.”
