At least three US military bases could be established in Argentina’s provinces of Neuquen, Misiones and Tierra del Fuego, the Mexican news portal Aristegui Noticias.

According to the media outlet, the creation of the military bases will be supervised and financed by the US Southern Command. Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri has reportedly given the green light to this move and Security Minister Patricia Bullrich was one of the key supporters of the idea.

The report states that the formal goal of this move is to boost security in Argentina and in the surrounding area. However, according to experts, this is a clear continuation of the long-standing US policy aimed at boosting military and political presence in Southern America and consolidating its de-facto dominance in the region.
