Jansen affirms that ' ' the interests of Americans and Europeans for the resources of the Amaznia already had motivated the defense of the thesis of ' sovereignty relativa' , that, obviously, she is not accepted for the Brasil' '. It says that the Gutter North – a project of reinforcement of the borders of the North of the Country – was one of more important under the point of view of the defense of the national interests. But it laments that the project has been ' ' wronged for the infantile mistake to that if he dealt with a militarization of the Amaznia' '. The general, whose colleagues of group still are in the active, supports that the Gutter North was motivated by the intention to extend the presence of diverse segments of the society in the region. ' ' The military segment was only one of them ' ' , it says. At the time where it was conceived (1986), the project represented, also, an attempt of Brazilian reply to the influence of Cuba in the Suriname.
For Jansen, ' ' the System of Monitoring of the Amaznia (Sivam) has vulnerabilities, because the supplier of its equipment knows the characteristics of the material, its signatures eletrnicas' ' , but it believes that the alternative would be to be blind in relation to the region. The immediate steps of strategical reach recommended by general Jansen for the reinforcement of the Brazilian sovereignty in the Amaznia must be the full operation of the Sivam, urgent reactivation of the Gutter North and an effective priority for the economic vocation of the Amaznia. Mr. MOZARILDO CAVALCANTI (PFL – RR) – I thank the V. Ex, Senator Tio Viana, who is a man expert of the Amaznia and that he has here boarded in the Senate, with much seriousness, the problems of the region.
