Timerman says Argentina without Malvinas is “an incomplete country” Timerman says Argentina without Malvinas is “an incomplete country”

Argentina without the Malvinas Islands is an “incomplete country”, and the right to self determination is a ‘flag’ Argentina “will never allow to be used by whom were the basis of the largest empire history has recorded”, said Minister Hector Timerman on his arrival on Monday to London.

“Argentine rights over the Malvinas Islands make to the spirit of national union” said Timerman emphasizing that without Malvinas “Argentina is an incomplete country. We are missing a piece of our territory and that is why this struggle for the recovery of the Malvinas that will make Argentina an integral country, is so important”.

“Argentina does not receive orders or submits to ultimatums from foreign governments” added the Argentine official who insisted that “the UK pretends to apply imperial rule on Argentina with an ultimatum conditioning talks, something which Argentina, the government of President Cristina Fernandez and this Foreign minister are not willing to accept”.

Timerman said Argentina is willing to sit to dialogue with the UK but in accordance with the Untied Nations mandate and rejects “the participation of the people from the Falkland Islands in any Malvinas sovereignty negotiations”.

“Self determination is our flag; a flag that we will never allow to be used by those who were the basis, the cradle of the largest empire history has recorded”.

Timerman insisted that “self determination is the mother of the Argentine republic and of all Latinamerica. All of us are the children of the independence battles of the 19th century”. Likewise he pointed out that Argentina has supported “all the struggles for self determination and independence of the all the peoples of the world”.

The Argentine Foreign minister during his visit to London will be participating in several events of “analysis, discussion and debate as to how re-launch dialogue with the United Kingdom on the Malvinas sovereignty”.
