These are natural training [exercises] that are carried out all over the world by all the armed forces,” said Deputy Alberto Asseff from the opposition PRO, a member of the Juntos por el Cambio (JxC) coalition of former President Mauricio Macri, who spoke as Chairman of the House’s National Defense Committee, having also acted as rapporteur for the bill.
