Chile, Spain Sign Defense Agreements

SANTIAGO – Chile and Spain signed several agreements dealing with defense after the 9th bilateral Mixed Defense Commission meeting, the Chilean defense minister said.

“We have moved forward on a series of issues that we’re going to be checking in the next two days: cooperation on cyber-defense issues, prevention, peacekeeping forces where Spain’s experience is very important,” Jorge Burgos said in a statement.

Burgos said that “Chile is a country that incorporated itself into the world of peacekeeping forces to stay and expand it.”

Meanwhile, Spanish Defense Minister Pedro Morenes said that “defense investment and work ... generate stability, because they allow progress, justice and wellbeing, which are values for which we are fighting.”

In addition, Morenes thanked Burgos for “his vision in the relationship with Spain.”

The 9th Mixed Defense Commission meeting took place on Monday at Punta Arenas, 3,000 km (1,860 mi.) south of Santiago, where officials reviewed the program of activities included in the Bilateral Cooperation Plan 2015-2017.

This plan reflects not only the agreements reached by the delegations but also the recommendations formulated by the defense ministries at the meeting that was held last November in Madrid.

The experiences of Chile and Spain in peacekeeping operations also were discussed and examined at the meeting, with Spain offering to let Chile participate in operations where Spanish forces are deployed.

In addition, Chile expressed interest in receiving information and advice on managing armed forces assets in Spain and regarding ensuring sexual equality in the defense sector.
