LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — Bolivia says it is interested in buying Iranian-made airplanes and helicopters for military training and transportation.

Finance Minister Luis Arce tells Patria Nueva radio that the Andean nation is looking at Fajr-3, S-68 and 52-seat Iran-140 planes, along with four-seat helicopters. He does not say how many of each.

Arce said Sunday that President Evo Morales and Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad signed a letter of intent on the aircraft deal when Morales was in Tehran last week.

Bolivia also wants to team up with Iran to build a nuclear power plant and establish a joint development bank.

Like his ally Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, Morales has cultivated closer relations with Tehran, raising concerns in Washington.
