WORLD : U.S. Ends Argentine Arms Embargo

From Times wire services

The United States ended a 12-year-old embargo on military supplies to Argentina by signing a $13-million sales agreement today.

The Defense Ministry said the two countries signed an accord for the United States to sell Argentina spare parts for military helicopters and armored troop carriers. President Jimmy Carter in 1977 slapped an arms embargo on the then-military government because it violated human rights.
