    Venezuela’s defence minister has signed a deal to buy Chinese radar systems, the latest in a series of military purchases by the government of President Hugo Chavez.

    The Chinese-made long range surveillance radars will be used by Venezuela’s air force, defence officials said yesterday.

    Defence Minister Adm. Ramon Orlando Maniglia and Qu Huimin, the vice president of China’s Electronics Import and Export, signed the accord on Thursday, the state-run Bolivarian News Agency reported.

    The deal also includes the purchase of “other air security equipment” such as radios, and the possibility of renting a satellite communications system, the Defence Ministry said in a statement. The cost of the deal was not disclosed.

    Venezuela has stepped up purchases of military equipment this year, agreeing to buy Russian rifles and military helicopters.

    US officials have ccused Chavez of backing Colombian guerrillas with weapons - charges Chavez denies as ridiculous.

    The former army paratrooper has made a priority of fortifying Venezuela’s military, saying troops are ready to face any foreign attack if necessary.

    They better, they got lots of oil to protect.

    This just keeps getting more and more ridiculous. Every country with oil is somehow responsible for terrorist attack on the U.S.
