Bolivia to Install Radar System on Borders

ARGENTINA / 4 AUG 2011 BY JEN SOKATCH EN

Bolivia is set to install a radar security system on its border to better monitor its airspace and fight drug trafficking.

Interior Minister Sacha Llorenti said that the system would involve radars and unmanned aerial drones. It will be matched with similar schemes on the Brazilian and Argentine sides of the border.

Argentina recently announcing the installation of a similar radar system accompanied by fighter jets.

The Brazilian ambassador in La Paz said that both sides of the border would be monitored as long as there was mutual consent. Llorenti said "We will share every piece of information."
