Reciprocal Assistance Chile

Posted in the newspaper La Razon, Lima, Peru, on December 4, 2009 Why is the press in Argentina in 1982 called the neighboring country in the south as the “Cain” America? Ricardo Sanchez-Serra (*) I remember the headline (“Chile, the Cain of America”) of the newspaper Clarin in Buenos Aires, when Chile abstained in the meeting to implement the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR), after recovery -April 2, 1982 – Falkland Islands by Argentina and the war with Britain. And is that Chile, despite having declared itself neutral, openly helped Britain, ie, stabbed in the back of the Argentines. For the first time, I can mention that, working at the Embassy of Argentina in Lima, it was learned that the modern destroyer HMS Exeter (in service since September 1980) passed in mid-April 1982 – the Panama Canal in the direction of the islands South Sandwich and South Georgia by the Argentine recovered on April 3, 1982.

The funny thing is that the then British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, to hide the support of Chile, had lied to the media and international English, saying that the HMS Exeter sailed the Atlantic, with the purpose of taking those islands. The truth is: HMS Exeter, with more than 200 miles off the coast of Peru, the Peruvian government requested permission to fill their tanks with gasoline (as they call it the Argentine gasoline) in the port of Paita-in Peruvian north, being denied permission..
