    As a person with close ties to El Salvador, I welcome this development.

    The UK sees LatAm slipping away, they open trade talks, embassies, develop investments and try to find common ground, result: more trade, closer ties, more trust.
    Argentina sees the Falklands slipping away, they block shipping, harass the locals, complain to the UN; result: everyone wants Argentina to go forth and multiply.

    Learn anything?

    Another addition to the UK big lie propaganda campaign. Don't waste your time. Central America supports Argentina!

    @4 How can you say Central America supports argieland? Does Central America know argieland exists? Why would Central America give any thought to to a backward cesspit of uneducated, immature, juvenile delinquents?

    “Learn anything?”

    Of course they haven't, then again, there are some types of stupidity that are impossible to underestimate....... Stupid is as stupid does.

    “We have been away too long and this much-overdue Embassy signals just how serious we are about expanding in the region”, said Minister Swire

    Ha ha ha an someone tells CaMoron that he’s clock is delaying around 30 years?

    “We see particular opportunities for promoting sustainable economic growth and clean energy”

    Good would be a good thing is CaMoron promotes his sustainable economic growth at home because things are going pretty bad in UK.

    Britain more isolated every day passed, especially in Europe, may be CaMoron is thinking to open a embassy in El Salavador mean while closing the embassy in Germany. After all would be useless after they get kicked out of EU soon.
