As Merco Press reports, Uruguay is particularly interested in the dredging of the Martin Garcia canal, one of the two River Plate navigation accesses.
At the end of April Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman visited Montevideo and announced that the dredging of the Martin Garcia canal would be put out to tender on May 3.
However this did not happen because the Argentine delegation at the umbrella commission that manages River Plate affairs, CARP, interposed several objections.
Corruption allegations involving the Argentine delegation and the company currently responsible for River Plate dredging are under administrative investigation.
