Uribe imagining arms race: Bolivia
Thursday, 09 December 2010 09:18 Scott Kobewka

Bolivia's Defense Minister Ruben Saavedra called former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe's claims that Bolivia and Venezuela are in a nuclear arms race "ridiculous," reports Efe.

The minister said that Uribe's claims are "ridiculous and out of context" and that Bolivia has "no time or money" for such activities.

On Tuesday Uribe said that Bolivia and Venezuela may be in a nuclear arms race. "There was much criticism of the treaty between Colombia and the United States to face narcoterrorism ... but there has been not a single criticism of the nuclear developments in Bolivia and Venezuela," said the former president.

Saavedra said that Uribe's statements are unfounded and that he is "letting his imagination fly."
