Argentina declares state of emergency, allows shooting down aircraft
As part of these efforts, the government mandated an increase in security procedures regarding air transport and the acquisition of systems needed to improve maritime surveillance capabilities for ports, borders, and jurisdictional waters.
For its airspace, the government said its state of emergency allows the air force to identify, warn, intimidate, and eventually force uncooperative aircraft to land.
The presidential decree is not a 'shoot-down law', but it basically allows for a similar procedure to be applied if it is needed, and expands its application to other security areas, such as rivers and land borders.
