Venezuela is Spain's main buyer of weapons
Venezuela's arms purchase accounted for USD 217.54 million from January-June, 26.5% of Spain's arms exports
From January-June, Hugo Chávez's Government purchased USD 217.54 million in arms, which is 26.5% of the total amount of arms exports reported by Spain, according to a document presented by the Economy Ministry to the Congress this week, AP cited.
The purchase mostly entails the acquisition of the last military vessel (out of eight) ordered by Venezuela to Spanish ship maker Navantia.
The can of tuna, formerly a fairly normal pantry staple, has long been missing from stores in Venezuela, especially the domestic brands. When tuna cans, imported or domestic, do occasionally show up on store shelves, prices have increased several fold.
