Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner defended her decision to place stronger controls on navigation and shipping within the Falklands called on the United Nations to force the United Kingdom to come through on negotiations over the sovereignty of that territory.

During a rally held in the Buenos Aires neighbourhood of Merlo, the president said that the United Kingdom has “systematically misunderstood” the UN resolutions and that “they have rejected the idea of sitting down” for negotiation.

Mrs. Kirchner promised she will insist “one thousand and one times for the international rights” to be respected, adding that “I am telling all Argentines that we will keep working for our rights in Malvinas”.

This way the Argentine president supported her decision to impede ships from any nationality to operate within the ports in the Falklands, South Georgia and South Sandwich Island and the continent, without previous Buenos Aires authorization.

The Argentine official strategy consists of impeding the exploitation of possible hydrocarbon resources within the Falklands, particularly on the eve of an exploratory drilling round scheduled to being next week with the arrival of a rig.

    Cristina is not of my sharm, but she has reason in which now, all the Argentinians ,around the world will protest energetically against the violation of our resources and our territory, in Madrid, Paris, New York, Miami, entire Latin America let's protest in all the embassies and British consulates and claim in the UN in order the UK fulfillment of the resolutions that this organisation dictates in a democratic system (not the Uk Dictactorship).

    Nitro, it's not your nation's territory. You che idiots are truly wasting your time rather dealing with serious issues that is crippling your nation slowly. You truly believe that in Madrid, Paris, NY and Miami they care about you clowns? Get real. We here in the west believe in Freedom, the people of the Falklands (UK) have spoken that they don't belong to the Argies. Second, the Falklands was never under Argentina and not even when it became an independent nation from Spain. That's is the reality.
