#news : Bolivia rejects Uribe's accusations about nuclear program

LA PAZ, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- The Bolivian government on Thursday rejected accusations by former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe that Bolivia and Venezuela were in a nuclear arms race.

"Uribe's words are ridiculous and out of context," Bolivian Defense Minister Ruben Saavedra said, rejecting Uribe's accusations.

Saavedra said that "Bolivia does not have the time nor the money to be in a nuclear arms race."

"We reject those statements aimed at affecting the image of Bolivia and Venezuela," Saavedra added.

Saavedra lamented that former presidents like Uribe are trying to harm Bolivia with declarations that are not only out of place, but also far from the truth.

Saavedra said that Uribe "uses his imagination too much, and we do not know what objective he has in mind, for saying such lies."

On Tuesday, Uribe warned about the danger of the nuclear weapons programs in Venezuela and Bolivia.

Uribe said that neither Bolivia nor Venezuela "need energy resources," which means that they "are in a nuclear arms race."

Uribe also said that the agreements between Colombia and the U.S. military were strongly criticized, and now there is silence about Bolivia's and Venezuela's decision to develop nuclear plants
