  • Description

    The new President of Argentina, General Roberto Marcelo Levingston, reviewed a military parade in Buenos Aires on Tuesday (7 July). In a speech the same day, the President, who took power in a bloodless military coup last month, presented his Government's plan of action and warned against terrorists and subversives that were undermining the country.

    Personnel from the airforce, navy and army marched through the streets of the Argentine capital watched by crowds lining the route. Included in the parade were tanks, rocket carriers and mounted horse guards. Military aircraft flew past overhead.

    In his statement the President said the country was "shaken by intense and continuous social tensions that are caused, in party, by real factors, but accentuated by certain factions whose main object is to undermine the nation."
    The military Government of President Levingston, which ousted his predecessor General Ongania, has promised to return to democratic and representative Government within a reasonable time-limit.
