The Argentine government acknowledged on Saturday that it lacked the proper technology to recover the submarine found deep in the Atlantic that disappeared a year ago with 44 crew members aboard.

Defence Minister Oscar Aguad said at a press conference that the navy lacks submersibles with "modern technology" capable of "verifying the seabed" to extract the ARA San Juan, which was found 800 metres (2,625 feet) deep in waters off the Valdes Peninsula in Argentine Patagonia. Earlier in the morning, the navy said a "positive identification" had been made by a remote-operated submersible from the American company Ocean Infinity.
