Foreign minister Alfredo Moreno ratified Chilean support for Argentina’s sovereignty claim over the Falklands/Malvinas Islands during a meeting with a delegation from Andean countries belonging to the “Solidarity Group with Malvinas”.

“The rights of Argentina in the Malvinas sovereignty dispute with the UK are legitimate” said Moreno at the meeting with representatives from Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela and Chile.

The delegation arrived on Tuesday at the ministry from the Diego Portales University where they participated in a Malvinas discussions panel among the solidarity groups from the region that also elaborated a document with the conclusions of the debate.

Minister Moreno congratulated the Andean representatives for their initiative on the issue and recalled that Chile was the co-sponsor of this year’s draft resolution on the Falklands/Malvinas issue at the UN Decolonization Committee or C24.

A copy of the conclusions from the panel discussions by the Malvinas supporters was handed to Minister Moreno.

The Chilean representative in the “Solidarity Group with Malvinas”, former Foreign minister Juan Gabriel Valdés said that “Malvinas is not a bilateral issue with the UK, but a cause of Latinamerican interest”.

The group during their interview with Foreign minister Moreno was accompanied by the Argentine ambassador in Chile, Ginés González García.

    “The rights of Argentina in the Malvinas sovereignty dispute with the UK are legitimate”

    Right on Mr. Minister! Just simple words of wisdom from an enlightened diplomat.

    “Minister Moreno congratulated the Andean representatives for their initiative on the issue and recalled that Chile was the co-sponsor of this year’s draft resolution on the Falklands/Malvinas issue at the UN Decolonization Committee or C24.”

    As he correctly should do so!

    “The Chilean representative in the “Solidarity Group with Malvinas”, former Foreign minister Juan Gabriel Valdés said that “Malvinas is not a bilateral issue with the UK, but a cause of Latinamerican interest”.”

    It can’t be any other way!

    And our family gets bigger by the minute. Let's hope no ignorant agitator shows up squandering their narrow views of the world, support is always good. It could be greater if Chile and Argentina sat down and talked barrick gold and the environment, fruits, wine and meat will provide work for ever gold will end up in a foreign bank. The malvinas issue almost seem like a distraction. All of south America should focus on the same objectives.

This does not hinder the discussion regarding Las Malvinas in any way. This is the essence of the UK's problem - united, effective and continuing opposition to its invasion.
