BUENOS AIRES, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- The Argentine government reiterated its need on Wednesday to re-negotiate with the U.S. government military accords signed between 1953 and 1964, which the South American country deemed outdated.
Argentine Defense Minister Nilda Garre insisted on a review and re-negotiation while meeting visiting U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Frank Mora.
"Many of the contents of those talks and their specific agreements involve issues and typical activities of conceptions associated to the Cold War," Garre told Mora last month during her visit to the United States.
The 1953, 1960 and 1964 accords included clauses related to the internal security of the country as well as activities of intelligence exchange on issues that are now prohibited to the Armed Forces, like drug trafficking, terrorism and other security threats, and to nuclear cooperation.
Other senior defense and military officers from both countries were present at the meeting.
