Costa Rica is concerned that a reported delivery of Russian tanks to its neighbor Nicaragua could militarize Central America, Foreign Minister Manuel Gonzalez said Wednesday.

The Moscow-based Center for Analysis of World Arms Trade said Monday that Russia was preparing to ship some 20 modernized T-72B1 tanks to Nicaragua under their last year’s deal for 50 tanks.
