La Paz, Jun 14 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian soldiers are being trained by experts in the fight and control of forest fires, which harm Bolivia economically, the Ministry of Defense reported on Tuesday.

With this drill, the military forces will strengthen the operational capacities and perfect their skills when handling risk situations posed by forest fires, Minister of Defense, Edmundo Novillo, said.
