    More conclusive proof that all these committees don't really pay any attention to Argentina's claims, just a bit of lip service.

    Was there a mention of the Falklands, they have mines laid by Argentina as I recall. They encourage countries to clear mines from their national territories, so why aren't they encouraging Argentina to clear their mines from their national territory.

    Perhaps because they know that the Falklands are not part of Argentina.

    Surely Argentina should be up in arms about this, like they are with their maps. The OAS is also missing the Falklands off Argentinian territory.

    It all seems to be going wrong for the Malvanistas, even the OAS slogan seems to support the Islanders “More rights for more people”. How many nails can a coffin take......
