    On balance, it looks to me like Argentina lost this one ...... ?

    .... “ the Court was not convinced with Argentina’s arguments ...” - Now there's a phrase Argentina may have to get used to if it ever shows the courage to take the Falklands dispute to the ICJ.

    Jajajajajajaja......You MercoPress never cease to amaze me, The headline should have been this:

    “”the International Court of Justice pointed out that Uruguay failed in complying with all procedural steps of consulting with neighbouring Argentina, as established in a 1975 shared waters management agreement“”

    - That's we were there. However, as I mentioned once, This court of “justice” is always in favour of economic interests.

    Or as usual Argentina made a mountain out of a mole hill and a technical violation part of the treaty is the court's way of saving Argentine face. Apart from a “technical violation” of the treaty, every other allegation made by Argentina was rejected.

    But of course Argentina didn't get its own way, so the court must be biased.

    I draw attention to the fact I predicted this a year ago.
