The new Argentine ambassador before the Organization of American States, OAS, former Defence and Home Security minister Nilda Garré begins her diplomatic job with a main line of action: ‘claiming the Malvinas Islands sovereignty” and the “resumption of negotiations with the UK”.

“The Argentine agenda at the OAS has a main objective: address all hemispheric challenges from a regional perspective and thus contribute to the strengthening of the South American block in this front here in Washington”, pointed out Ambassador Garré in her Facebook account.

And “undoubtedly the main issue for the mission I have been instructed at OAS is the flagship of Argentine foreign policy, which is also that of Latinamerica: the sovereignty claim over our Malvinas Islands”, underlined the ambassador in what could mean an emulation of the activities displayed by another Argentine ‘ambassadress’, Alicia Castro in London .

Garré said that her contribution will be “the reinforcement at the hemispheric organization of the different courses of action deployed by the Argentine government since 2003: mainly to add support for Argentina’s rights over the Malvinas Islands and the resumption of negotiations with the UK”.

At the same time strengthening the regional block is displayed in “a global scenario over-determined by the drums of war speared by the trans-national-military-financial complex towards de facto solutions, unilaterally decided and contrary to international ethics and law and underlines that in a globalized world such operational scenarios are never remote”.

“The instructions from the President (Cristina Fernandez) for this task are the consolidation of the inter-American human rights system and of the Inter-American Human Rights Court. Likewise in the hemispheric defence the construction of a common strategy against trans-national organized crime”.

Furthermore there should be no new Americas Summit with the absence of Cuba and “we will work with the sister nations of the hemisphere so that the re-incorporation of the Caribbean island republic to OAS (as agreed in 2009) acquires full political sense”.

The former minister begins this week the re-launching of the Argentine strategy before OAS in Washington and to that respect the new phase is signalled by a global and hemispheric scenario which requires of all efforts to ensure the political objectives of Peace, Democracy, Security, Human Rights and Development.

These objectives of Argentine foreign policy were defined by Nestor Kirchner and Cristina Fernandez in 2003 and sustained since then and in “this framework OAS plays a leading role to strengthen integration and a South American strategy” underlined ambassador Garré.

    Please someone translate this into something, anything, please.

    I was about to yawn until I started to piss myself laughing.

    This amateur hour sponsored by Argentina!

    “the resumption of negotiations with the UK” : this sounds awfully like an admission that the UK has indeed attempted to negotiate in the past, and by extension fully met its obligations under 2065.

    According to my count, this makes for the third admission of untruths in the standard Malvinista narrative, the other two being the admission in London that no civilians were expelled in 1833, and the admission at the UN that there was no official Argentine claim to the islands until 1829.

    Next thing you know, they'll be admitting it was Argentina that invaded in 1982.
