The foreign ministers of Argentina and Brazil agreed on Tuesday to cooperate to produce unmanned aircraft used for surveillance of borders and the fight against drug trafficking, said the Brazilian government. The issue was discussed during a meeting of ministers Arturo Puricelli, Argentina, and Celso Amorim, whose country aim to produce craft Israeli technology for its own use and to sell to other Latin American nations, said the press office of the Brazilian Ministry of Defense . The Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer company signed an agreement in November with Aeroeletrónica Systems, a local subsidiary of the Israeli Elbit Systems to develop and commercialize Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). The two ministers discussed the possibility that Argentina is incorporated as a partner for the production of UAVs that would be distributed in Latin America. (Source: AP)Read Article
