The Paraguayan MP Ruben Rubin admitted that “I would go to war” with Argentina as part of the conflict between the two countries Yacyretá and the waterway and even declared that his country needed missiles.
Rub in In a surprise speech in the Guaraní Parliament, he urged war conflict and emphasized the need for his country “Missiles reaching key areas of the region”.
The MP made this statement two days after the Paraguayan government decided to withdraw 100% of its energy from the country Binational entity Yacyretá accordingly, which aggravated the conflict with the Argentine administration over the collection of tolls on the the Paraná-Paraguay waterway.
“These tensions with the neighboring country are a clear example that the national defense budget must be a priority. As a young Paraguayan, I would go to war. Without a doubt I would go to war for my country“, started the representative of the Hagamos party in Paraguay.
And he added: “I believe that this is not so much about how many soldiers or troops we have, but rather about the technology, about missiles that reach key areas in the region, that protect our resources.”
Massa’s visit and an allegedly unfulfilled promise
A few days ago, the economics minister and presidential candidate visited the neighboring country. Sergio Massa whereupon diplomatic anger arose because Chancellery rejected a supposed promise to stop charging tolls waterway.
Rub in after declaring that he would go to war with him Argentina complained about an alleged agreement between USA and that Argentina This also included financing the purchase of the aircraft: “How can that be?” USA provides loans to a country with which it cooperates China “And they tell us, ‘Don’t work with China, work with Taiwan,’ and on top of that they don’t give us money for weapons?” he asked.
“I understand that the priorities are different, such as better schools, hospitals, public transport. Now I’m wondering if that’s not a statement. What good are better schools to me if we don’t have the capacity to defend these buildings, our borders or our hydroelectric dams?” he added Rub in.
The central axis of anger is the imposition of tolls in the Paraná-Paraguay waterway. According to the Paraguayan press “ Argentina “undertook to temporarily suspend the unilateral collection of tolls on this navigable waterway, but later the government of the neighboring country rejected such a position.”
