    The Argentine government describe the British activities of 3 January 1833 as, 'on 3 January 1833 a British Royal Navy corvette with the support of another warship in the vicinity, threatened to use greater force and demanded the surrender and handover of the settlement.' And 'The act of force of 1833, carried out in peacetime without prior communication or declaration by a government friendly to the Argentine Republic...' (History – Ministerio de Relacioes Exteriores y Cutlowww.mrecic.gov.ar/es/history 1. History).

    For the Government of Argentina to continue to claim that the Falklands were stolen from them in the nineteenth century lacks credibility.
