Venezuela was reported at the top of the list of countries buying arms from Spain in the first half of 2012 and ratifies its position, for two consecutive years, as Spain's main client, the authorities informed.

From January-June, Hugo Chávez's Government purchased USD 217.54 million in arms, which is 26.5% of the total amount of arms exports reported by Spain, according to a document presented by the Economy Ministry to the Congress this week, AP cited. 

The purchase mostly entails the acquisition of the last military vessel (out of eight) ordered by Venezuela to Spanish ship maker Navantia.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
