An Argentine Senator has stated that the solution to the Falklands/Malvinas dispute is a period of shared sovereignty, with Latin American support and guarantees, before the Islands are finally handed over to Argentina.

 Pointing out that he was speaking on a personal proposal, Senator Salvador Cabrera Arrechea from the province of Misiones said that “with the unification of Mercosur, Unasur and overall Latin America, Argentina must propose a shared sovereignty for 30 years before finally recovering the Malvinas Islands”.

The lawmaker added that, again on his view, “we’re not going to get the Malvinas back with an annual claim presentation”, before the UN Decolonization Committee.

Senator Cabral Arrechea was one of several speakers at a special forum on the Malvinas cause: sovereignty and identity”, which took place at the Conventions Hall of the provincial capital Posadas.

“I have been invited by a Lower House committee which is chaired by Carla Pretto”, to talk on the issue and “I will insist on the proposal I’ve been supporting since the end of the South Atlantic war (June 1982)”, insisted the Argentine lawmaker.

Cabral Arrechea recalled that the UK returned Hong Kong to Beijing following an accorded period of time, while nationalist China, or Taiwan ended diplomatically isolated and ignored by the UN”

    He got that correct, Argieland is never going to get the Falkland Islands. Furthermore you cant recover something you never had. They are beyond belief. Why concentrate on a lost cause when economic disaster is just couple of weeks away?

    The only solution available to you, my dear Argentinian government retards, is to leave the islanders to make their own decisions. Concentrate on your own messed up country, you can't even run that properly.

    “we’re not going to get the Malvinas back with an annual claim presentation”. That statement is five words too long mate.
