    Councillor Richard Davis with delegates from Gibraltar and Cayman at UN seminar in Grenada last month

    The Argentines use every opportunity to promote their case. International organizations such as the United Nations and the Organisation of American States (OAS) are lobbied hard. Opportunities such as the Ibero American summit as well as scientific and conservation meetings are shamelessly used. Serious debate on issues like the conservation of fish stocks or wildlife are often hijacked or held up by Argentina's objections and statements about sovereignty.
