Portuguese frigates to Uruguay

According a contact of mine in Montevideo, the portuguese frigates from João Belo class (similar to the french Commandant Rivière, modernized in 1999 with, for example, a new sonar and comunication systems) will be transfered to Urugay. The authorities in Montevideo haven't annouced this fact yet since first the acquisition needs a parliamentary approval.
In the case of the portuguese navy, the two ships will be replace by two Karel Doorman, bought to The Netherlands in last December.
