Nuclear energy. Agreement

Brazil-FRA. Position of Argentina.


118 61735. Reference circular cable 10.627. Information: “The Buenos Aires government should officially support Brazil on the issue of the nuclear cooperation agreement with the FRA”, the Ambassador of Argentina here, Esteban Taracs, told me. He said further that “if the USA succeeds in preventing or limiting the German-Brazilian, agreement the next objective will be the sabotage of the Brazilian nuclear program”.

Two. Taracs seemed very angry with the problems raised here for the sale of the CANDU reactor and affirmed that Argentina will seek to purchase its third nuclear plant from Western Germany.
