“Malvinas Argentinas” and “One China” policies ratified by Beijing and Buenos Aires

Visiting Chinese Vice-president Li Yuanchao expressed on Friday “full support for Argentina’s sovereign claims over the Malvinas Islands” while his Argentine peer, Amado Boudou matched his words ratifying the ‘one China’ policy.

Vice-presidents Boudou and Li exchanged smiles and supports

The Chinese top official, on his first overseas visit since the new administration of President Xi Jinping was inaugurated this year in Beijing, was received by President Cristina Fernandez, and later visited the Argentine Congress before heading for the Palacio San Martin, seat of the Foreign ministry to sign a raft on agreements that make to the ‘strategic association’ of China with Argentina.

Foreign minister Hector Timerman and the head of the Lower House Julian Dominguez, who has been to China several times both as a lawmaker and former Agriculture minister, were also present at the event.

“The commitment of the relation with China that covers economic, financial, productive and international affairs will continue to strengthen with time” said Boudou in his speech before thanking the visiting Vice-president Li for Beijing’s ongoing support for “Argentine sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands”.

“We have always been clear about the concept of a ‘one China’; we have always been next to you in support of ‘one China’; this has been so during the more than four decades of full bilateral relations”, said Boudou.

On his turn Li said that “China renews its support for Argentine sovereignty claims over the Malvinas Islands and is grateful for Argentina’s stance on the ‘one China’ principle, and the question of Taiwan and Tibet”.

Boudou underlined the strength with which both countries have been working in multilateral organizations and G20 to advance with the new world financial and economic architecture “with greater emphasis on the real economy and life quality of the peoples instead of concentrating only in the financial system as has been happening so far”.

Following the speeches several cooperation agreements were signed including technical assistance at university level with Chinese corporations and others referred to trade and investments. China is the second most important trade partner of Argentina, behind Brazil.

From Argentina, the Chinese delegation flies to Venezuela for another round of talks on trade, energy, defence and finance.

14 reality check (#) May 11th, 2013 - 08:02 am Report abuse
It was usurped by the British Empire from the Chinese and a population of Gurkha mercenaries were implanted there. That is why they do not have the right to self determination, because they do not exist as defined by the numerous binding UN resolutions, a people. A view supported by the Ecuadorian head of the C24. Tibet is part of the Chinese motherland. Li Yuancho stated a petition of 100 Billion people was being collected to be presented at the UN to prove it.

Argentinas view on Tibet, Taiwan, Paracel, Shikoku, Spratley Islands are that they are part of Chinese Territory.

Unless they are talking to Japan, when Shikoku is clearly Japanese, or they are talking to Vietnam, when the Paracel Islands are Vietnamese, or the Philipines when the Spratleys are clearly Philipino.

Generally, in Argentina, Tibet is always Chinese as the Tibetans can offer them nothing, and Taiwan is part of China for the same reason.

However, this article is interesting. When are China going to “do anything” to support Argentina...or is like the Brazilian or Uruguaian support, where they say it and then act the opposite?

Will China be offering military support?
Will China be putting in place trade sanctions?
Will China be joining fat Toni outside the Lan offices?

Or will they be doing fuck all, and the islands remain with their rightful owners the islanders ad infinitum?

My guess is the latter...but I bet Argentina has been raped for the “vocal support” and the dollar reserves are down again as Mr Li flies home with a briefcase full!!

It seems rather obvious that China isn't supporting Argentina because they are upset that Argentina's murderers and rapists were sent home two centuries ago, but rather because they themselves are terrified of the principle of self-determination, given that they occupy or covet vast swathes of territory against the wishes of the inhabitants.

Whatever one's view on Tibet, the PRC have administered it continuously for over 60 years and despite UN resolutions they are not going to leave and will not face being ostracised internationally to any practical extent for being there.

In contrast, Argentina don't occupy the Falklands and have only ever administered the Islands for two 2-month periods in history, neither of which went well and on both occasions they were quickly removed. On the latter occasion a binding UN resolution told them to leave.

It's tricky to see where the comparison lies.

Argentina is like a dirty little whore. Willing to accept any perversion and give up on any normal morally accepted decent behaviour for a few pesos or some kind of open acknowledgement however shallow, that their seedy version of the world is right.

The trouble is that the sane world knows that they all collectively suffer from some nasty venereal disease and avoid them like the plague. They are therefore left to prostitute themselves to wacko jacko individuals or nations. The 'pesos' or 'words' received are therefore meaningless or worthless.

Erm... hate to point out the obvious but your quote is about an Argentine politician saying ”thanks for the support“... I still havent see a chinese politician actually expressing that support.

In addition the furthest they would go remains tacit support for the call for talks - unfortuantley many Argentines ahve been indoctrinated into believing that ”talks“ = surrender of sovereignty to Argentina.

Hate to be the bearer of bads news but ”talks” means that the UK and Argentina sit down around a table, are joined by FIG representatives and the Uk and FIG tell Argentine to frak off.

Congratulations Argentina, Chinas support is fulfilled.

I am not sure why Argentina thinks that if they did have dialogue between themselves and the UK, even without Falkland Islanders being present, that this would be a one way route to Argentine sovereignty?

Surely Argentina's claims without the exact examination of historical documents which refute those claims, and not taking into account the provisions of the UN charter (as per 2065 et al since insist ), would collapse anyway.

China might refuse to exercise self determination, but this part of the UN charter cannot be airbrushed away whetehr China likes it or not.

It says something that even when Argentina and UK were having dialogue and the UK wanted rid of the Falklands, Argentina still did not get them, except when their pirates invaded, as the UK could not go against the UN charter it had signed up to.

Everyone supports dialogue on the issue, but as several posters have pointed out:
Argentina: We want the Falklands because you usurped them in 1833.
UK: Bollocks-we claimed them since 1690, and when we occupied Port Egmont in 1765 you weren't there(and neither were the Spanish). We exercised our previous claim in 1833.
Argentina :( Fingers stuck in ears) You threw off our civilian settlers in 1833.
(Dialogue on history with UK diplomats examining historical documents and Argentines producing cartoons and emotive outbursts as evidence for about 5 days).
UK: And in addition to that we are sticking to the UN charter which says the Islanders born on the Islands must have a say (according to international law)-so we have bought in some MLA's to discuss this with you.
Talks end. Argentina makes false claims for the next few 100 years.

China has not publicly stated support because they are fence sitting and walking a political tightrope. In one case....they need to usurp all the natural resources they can from Argentina, so they essentially and quietly say yeah....we support you, but never publicly making a statement. This would be the equivalent to waking after a night at the bar and waking with the fat ugly chick...........and bragging about it!!
On the other hand they still need the UK market to export to because there is not enough consumer purchasing power in Argentina to offset the loss if they were to get into a political riff with the UK. Trade with the UK is equally as important as usurping the natural resources in Argentina. Remember...China cannot feed nor fuel itself so they need weaker nations to suck off of. Here is a thought......will the misquito (china) stop sucking the arm (argentina) when it has enough, or will it explode from greed?

“No economy,”

Well, it's better than yours will ever be.

“No money”

More than Argentina can lay it's hands on.

“ No jobs”

More than Argentina has (or will ever get under Queen Botox).

“ No AAA.”

Ever heard of Rapier? The missile with 4 miles range that Argentina claims threatens SA?

“ No Carriers,no planes”

UK has got a brilliant carrier-it's called MPA-and we only need a
handful of planes to keep your antique airforce at bay. Though you can inspect some well maintained Argentine military aircraft if you wish-they are housed in museums around the UK.

“No Royal Navy.”

That's why you sh1t yourself anytime you think a British submarine is within 1000 miles of Argentina?

“No Royal Mail.”
Well we do actually have communication within the UK

“No support from USA.”

Argentina definately hasn't.

“No support from China.”

Our trade is more important to China than yours.

“ No support from EU.”

Wait till the Spanish MEP gets an Alex Ferguson from the EU.

“No hopes.”

We will have Skylon, whereas you can't even manufacture aircraft (apart from the out of date jet named after a babies diapers).

“No influence in the world.”

Our influence doesn't come in the form of shouting our mouths off like Argentina with zero results (and having to retract all the time).

“No respect from Spain.”

Is that important?

Sorry to hear about your steak. Still the transaction was not a complete loss. The Uruguayan rancher from whom you bought your steak took your dollars and put them in the bank.

If you go from Chile to Argentina you will find that the quality of the meat improves immeasurably. But the livestock is the same in both countries. The difference is that the Argentinians know how to raise, slaughter and butcher their meat. The Chileans, bless their cotton socks, do not.

Chilean beef is regarded as the worst in southern America. However, it is orders of magnitude better than any that can be bought in England. You see the beef that you bought had been butchered in England. And England is a country that can take high quality raw materials and convert then into crap. It reminds me of what used to be said about Soviet manufacturing; the value of the manufactured product was worth less than the value of the raw materials.

John the turd. Why do you link yourself to the Pope? Are you religious or the complete opposite (a heathen) and just taking the piss?

Don't apologise. It was really cheap. My wife bought in error. I nearly gave it to the dog but I didn't want it to be sick. Good luck to the rancher.

In the UK we have some massive grocery store groups competing with each other. The bottom end; Tesco and Asda (a Walmart company I think) are constantly price cutting each other and therefore they try and source food from all over the world. Anywhere where it is cheap. South America is really cheap for them but they have to be able to sell the food when they bring it over and there lies the problem. Putrid. Nobody will touch. British, Irish and Scottish, real quality, is relatively expensive. You have clearly never tried it. A typical good sized steak would cost the equivalent of an average Argentine's weekly living allowance.

Mercopress has shown a pictures of a grocery stores in Argentina. There is nothing on the shelf. Do you not have anything to eat over there? Are you ll starving? It is good that we have stopped taking your meat. If you are starving, even putrid food will keep you alive although personally I would rather starve.

A little bit of sour grapes in your last sentence?

Britain was know as the shopkeeper to the world. Cost, quality, the lot. Log on to the London Stock Exchange website. See the list of British companies. A lot will be household names in SA.

Dany, mate, in 2008 the UN voted on an Argentine/Spanish motion to limit the right of self-determination in cases where a territorial dispute exists. The UK proposed a counter amendment restating the principle of self-determination.

The results were as follows :

Voted with UK: 61
Voted with Argentina: 40
Abstained: 47
Didn't turn up: 44

So Argentina got 40 votes out of a possible 192, or about 20%.

This is a bit different from “the whole world supports Argentina”, as we are so often told. Quite onbviously, most of the world couldn't care less about Argentina's claim, and of the remainder more support the right of self-determination than Argentina's denial of it.

Of those countries that did support Argentina, the breakdown is as I stated it in @78, i.e the majority are your fellow implanted populations of South America, with a sprinkling of nutters, dictatorships, and other would-be or actual usurpers of somebody else's territory. And as Chicureo points out in @79, you shouldn't be betting the farm on your fellow implanted populations, the more so since you are dumb and self-obsessed enough to keep pissing them off while simultaneously demanding their support.

Interesting the comments about the quality of beef in Chile.
On about any day you can find special offers on imported beef from Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, the USA and Austrailia. (free market here you know) and of course Chile. Typically, the most expensive, cut for cut is Chile, with the Waygu being the highest. Argentian grass fed red Angus used to be the best, but now I personally think its the lomo vetado from New South Wales. As far as the asado its self can be found at the Mercado del Puerto in Montevedo.
By the way, the best cuisine in South America is in Lima, the best seafood is in Chile, the best wine typically is from both Chile and Argentina, the most attentive waiters in Argentina, the best overall BBQ dining experience is Brazil and Paraguay has the best beef value for price/quality.
Where the Campora fool gets the idea that Chilean beef is poor, and has never had an authentic Aberdeen Angus Steak is as ignorant as they come...

Don’t be silly will you Simon?

Have you ever eat what normal Brits eat in England?

Those meat factories you talk about went broke long time ago during Alfonsin’s and Menem times and Swift only exported Canned corned beef

This is pure shit now made in Philippines

During Alfonsin presidency most of the 300 meat exporter factories were destroyed by Alfonsin economy policies and Menen gave them the final shot.

How do I know this?

From first hand, family members that have a company that supplied the 300 exporter factories in Argentina and the family company went also burst together with many of those factories.

Meat factories like Frigorifico Monte Grande SA, Yaguane SA, PENTA SA, La Morocha SA, FabricarneSA, Meatex sa, Finescor Sa, CEPA SA, Pontevedra SA, Ramallo sa, etc some with approved Hilton quotas went burst or under bankruptcy protection.

From those dark days “An Alfonsin’s relative and fellow friends wanted to acquire some of those factories for free and one engineer partner of them that acquired a factory called Yaguane SA. handled to get a Hilton quota (Are just partial cuts of the cow) to export from fellow govt. but the idiot didn’t know how the industry works and forgot to find clients for the rest of the cow.

Until the imminent collapse of the business he called fellow “correligionarios” friends better knows as “corrupt radicals politicians” and they provided him an Ad Hoc solution called “Mercados comunales” for neighbourhoods so he could avoid bankruptcy.

The factory went burst anyway and then come Julio Mera Figueroa and Samid (to the rescue).

But this is another story that if you want I can tell you about how Samid from poor become millionaire by renting, buying, creating debt and burst meat factories from the ‘80.

CFK and Kiss-off are growing rich off dupes like you.

The food in Britain is far better than the bitter-tasting propaganda that La Campora feeds you.

Do you really believe all that they tell you, and all that you slavishly repeat??

Read what is really happening in Argentina.
You and your children will be slaves for decades

Desperate reading for any sensible Argentine.

No doubt BK will agree with it.

Tell me Mr. Cosmopolitan why cosmopolitan British are monolingual?

You sure didn’t find your Lasagne with donkey meat by Findus and Comigel. Right?

@Troy Tempest

My question was what do you have from Sussex still British to offer. Ah! you couldn’t find anything. Right?

I think we've just seen you 'out' yourself as really being A “TOBY” SOCK PUPPET!!!

Both you and Toby seem to post in the same immature manner.

Some of us have noticed this before.

Toby posts @119 and then you, out of the blue, post @120, picking up a previous trolling subject about food and Mendoza!!

@124 Tell me Mr. Cosmopolitan why cosmopolitan British are monolingual?

Cosmopolitan people aren't, multiculturalists are, because they think multiculturalism absolves them of the need to know anything. In any event, there are more people in Britain studying the languages of Asia and Africa than there are in Argentina, which is a Third World country, and as such, ignores the other regions of the developing world.

The University of London has this - what does Argentina have?

This is the closest you'll ever get to seeing an Argentine speaking an Asian language -

In can be immature, but you didn’t answer what little Sussex has still English to offer...

Harder to find out. isn’t it?


No can you write you post again but this time in plain understandable English please?

The subject of the article is trade between China and Argentina, and what you have to offer them, on what terms.

Since @106, You have been doing your best to divert the discussion to UK food, UK debt, UK trade.

Sorry, we're doing well, thankyou.

Don't forget, “little Sussex”is part of ”little UK.
Lots of money here. Next time I see Paul McCartney and his pals at the Shepherd and Dog, I'll ask them how they came by it.

Meanwhile, it's a safe beautiful place to live. Still fresh salmon in the streams, very idyllic.

And of course, they can always travel to the Continent to their Spanish, French, or Italian seasonal homes where it's warm and the locals are grateful for the extra Euros. :-)

Maybe we can interest you in some International investments? Money up front, please.

Ta ta, deadbeat.

@127 Oh Dunny squatter
You write in reply to britanicus “please post inplain understandable English ” and in the same post produce this gramtic gem “ you didnt answer what little Sussex has still English to offer” Whats that supposed to mean?
Tu quoque , o Dunny gramaticus, tu quoque
You say you are multilingual (or monoglotal?)
No matter; you are certainly monotonous

You as always are wrong who started to talk about food was “Falklands are British” in post #85

“I had a rib eye steak from Tesco once which actually came from Uruguay. One bite and it went in the bin. Fucking awful. SA is the real bottom end of the market but nobody now seems to sell their meat. We even get chicken from Thailand in prepared foods. More shit. I would touch none of it. I can't believe that we buy anything from Argentina now even Malbec is fucking putrid.”

Can you see? Who can I have a serious debate with you guys if you are always confused and still talks about Paul McCartney? Is he still alive?

Don’t worry we can see “El Diego” (hand of god) around town. Ha ha

“Maybe we can interest you in some International investments? Money up front, please.”

What kind of business you can offer me? I’m just curios you know?


You are the master of English here. How can we write well when you are not able to write properly your own language?

Do ya know wha’ I mean?
