    Regarding Falklands oil exploration, Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana stated in February 2010, that his Government would take 'all measures necessary to preserve our rights' and also reiterated that Argentina had a 'permanent claim' on the islands, saying 'Buenos Aires would complain to the UN over the oil project and might take the case to the International Courts of Justice in the Hague.'

    43,000,000 millioner = 43,000,000,000,000 Argentinos.

    43,000,000 Argentinos of whom 14.000.000 live under the poverty line and a further 16.000.000 are underage, leaving 13 million who don't use the world's largest container company anyway.
