  • Description

    Argentine President, General Jorge Rafael Videla returned to Buenos Aires on Thursday (30 June) after a three-day visit to neighbouring Uruguay during which he made clear his opposition to the creation of blocs in Latin America.

    Presidents Videla and Mendez also ratified a series of bilateral agreements on trade and technical co-operation.

    SYNOPSIS: Shortly before he left Uruguay, General Videla and Uruguayan President Aparicio Mendez signed a joint declaration reaffirming the self-determination of their peoples and the principles of non-intervention, territorial integrity, peaceful solutions to international controversies and the faithful fulfilling of commitments. The agreement was also signed by the Argentine Foreign Minister Admiral Oscar montes and his Uruguayan counterpart Senor Alejandro Rovira. The document also expressed the firm resolve of both nations to resist all foreign pressures designed to "alter sovereign decisions on political matters or matters relating to the free disposition of natural resource".

    An important part of the joint declaration committed both countries to work for a rational and equitable exploitation of water resources to achieve the maximum benefit to all countries concerned without prejudicing the interests of any state. Argentina and Brazil are disputing the use of the waters of the Parana River, and President Mendez is expected to act as a mediator in talks between them.
