Cameron’s Malvinas change in policy is “evidence of weakness and internal crisis”

The British government’s decision to deny a meeting between UK and Argentina foreign ministers is proof of “weakness” and evidence of “the internal crisis situation” in the ruling coalition led by Prime Minister David Cameron, said Argentine Foreign minister Hector Timerman.

Timerman blames Cameron for the ‘cancelling’ of his meeting with Hague

“I think that PM Cameron’s attitude of not allowing the meeting is a manifestation of weakness, a situation of internal crisis in the coalition”, said Timerman in an interview published on Sunday in the government financed Pagina 12.

Timerman on Monday begins a week of activities related to Argentina’s Falklands/Malvinas sovereignty claim, which has been preceded by an ongoing controversy over the presence of Falklands’ elected government representatives in any meeting on the issue between Foreign Secretary William Hague and his Argentine peer.

“Malvinas is a bilateral issue” insisted Timerman who this week will be meeting British MPs in Parliament and holding a series of meetings with European groups that support UK/Argentina dialogue to resolve by peaceful means the dispute.

Regarding the Foreign Office ‘new’ policy of including Falklands’ representatives when addressing Malvinas Islands’ issues with Argentina, Timerman said this is a change of policy and underlined that the Falklands’ government is “illegal” and according to the UN “it is a colony of implanted inhabitants from a colonial power”.

Timerman said that the London trip will also help to address Argentina’s concern as to the existence or not of nuclear weapons in the Malvinas and other issues related to natural resources such as fisheries and hydrocarbons.

“These are Argentine resources and are being exploited by a colonial power”, said Timerman. He added that the ‘weakness of the Cameron government in Malvinas affairs, “is evident from the moment it has denied the possibility of a meeting of foreign ministers”.

Yes Hector - there are nuclear weapons in the Falklands. We've dragged a trident sub out of the water and parked it on Stanley High St to reassure the locals. If you could afford some spy satellites you'd be able to see it.

Argentinians must be very very stupid if they haven't got the capability of reading the news and seeing that it was Timmerman who turned down the meeting because of some requirements he had (his reasons are his own, we care not).

The fact is, the man continuously demanded talks and when he was offered talks and for his own reasons decided he didn't want them. The matter is now closed.

He can have a party with 18 of the 1'800'000 italian MPs (their cost of government is huge), but it's hardly representative of the international community.

Given the distances from BA for these resources, maybe London should complain to the UN about Algeria's gas production.

And while we are at it the next time Spain winges about Gib we should point out Spain is on our continental self and therefore belongs to the UK. All we have to do is annex and murder our way through France and it will be clear to everyone at the UN that Spain is a natural continuation of UK territory.

It all seems to bonkers to even think of trying, but some people lap it up.

@17 This is no substantial change in policy. The British Government has always said that the Islanders would have to be part of any discussion.

Argentina wouldn't be able to close SA to the EU. They could close their own borders though but considing the EU accounts for about 20% of Argentina's trade (and only 0.9% going the other way) this would only end up hurting the people on the street in Argentina.

Argentina can only send weak messages to Europe, it hasn't, and never has had the ability to send strong messages. Maybe one day, when you grow up, you'll understand what politics and diplomacy are all about, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

The EU needs the UK far more than the EU needs Argentina.

You really talk bollocks don't you? Right now because of the EU imposed tax on financial transactions, banks are setting up in the City of London.

I don't see how that would change if Britain decided to leave the EU, which isn't anytime soon, because the referendum on it won't be until 2015.

And since the UK in a net contributor to the EU (that means we put more money in than we get out), yes we are more important to the EU than Argentina is.

By the way Dany, Brazil is busy trading with the UK, as is Peru, Chile and Uruguay. Billions of US dollars worth of trade per year, with all parties very happy.

It always astounds me how you La Campora trolls truly believe that you speak for all of South America, when the rest of South America are doing very well without Argentina.

Argentina's economic policy is poison, and no one, not even your neighbours, support it.

“Iran is better that Ukistan has a lot of oil and needs a lot to import.”

This quote is strange. I thought Argentina had lots of oil, oh wait, you do, but because your government is a bunch of gangsters you can't get anyone to invest in it.

So instead, you get into bed with a country responisble for murdering nearly 100 Argentine citizens, and injuring nearly 200 more. Nice moral code you have. Oh, but I forgot, you're a NAZI, so you don't care what happens to a bunch of Jews, and if so non-Jews died in the attack, so what. The end justifies the means, doesn't it, Dany? For you NAZI's it does.

Argentina had got into bed with the Devil, and is in danger of being cast out of the international community. One step wrong, and the UN will end up imposing sanctions on Argentina, and then you wouldn't be able to trade your soya, and you wouldn't be able to import oil.

But that's okay, because Argentina doesn't need anyone, does it? Except Iran...LMFAO.

By the way Dany, how are your invasion plans going?

Britain needs to evolve. But its always been thus. And yet the British still have more opportunity and live in a more stable society.

If Britain is failing what is ARgentina doing with all those resources and opportunities it has?

Let me repeat this - ARgentina has 17 - thats 17 - times more land per person than the UK. ARgentina should be richer a reasonably egailtarian country and yet it clearly isnt. Argentina is a country deeply divided into 2 distinct halves, 25% inflation, outlook not looking good .

You've never read your own propaganda press that criticises everyone around the world while hides the UK shit under the carpet?

Are you against freedom of expression? free press? or what?

----I'm becoming and specialist on UK shit, financial problems, etc---

It might be better that you become a specialist on Peronism and Nationalism and why Argentina hasnt managed to stabilise and enrich its inhabitants despite the massive advantage it has over 90 % of the countries in the world.

it's good to see an Argentinian admit that he is a European

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon's statement:

“16 Non-Self-Governing Territories remain on the UN list.”
“ It is essential for the people concerned to understand the options regarding their political status and to be able to exercise their right to freely choose their future.”

“no carriers”

The ones we're building are the biggest UK has ever had-and you forget we have actually still got two carriers.

“no jets”

Errr No, we have 4 Typhoons on the Falklands and we're sending 1 more for the referendum, which can blast all of your jets (humorously called Fingers and Pampers) to kingdom come.

“no army”

Its twice the size of your amateur outfit and unlike yours its got combat experience. Still our basic training progresses beyond yours which involves flying white flags and training to shoot unarmed people.

“no friends”

Quite a few in Europe begging us to stay in the EU and the USA is a handy friend. Remember in 82 when the USA initially were neutral in the Falklands campaign and then helped us when your side rejected their peace initiative?

“once Britain a world power that dominated the seas”

Sad isn't it that these days we only neeed 4 ships in the South Atlantic to get your lot to wet themselves with panic?
Your navy can't even maintain its ships, though I am impressed with the Trinidad's interesting tactic of sailing stationary on its' side.

Aircraft carrier's bridge heads to sea

The barge will set out on its real journey tomorrow – to return in two years time in control of the world’s most advanced aircraft carrier

That bit looks more imposing on the barge than any of the 'ships' the argie prats have got in their laugh-a-minute 'navy’.

Have they got any fighting ships that can ACTUALLY go to sea without sinking or stopping because the electrical system set itself on fire?

Ha, ha, ha.
