    I am truly delighted by this report. It confirms my opinion that only lip service is paid by Latin American countries to the Malvinista claims of Argentina.

    Very well done Rossy; you deserve special recognition for your contribution to the Power and Electrical Department.

    ...and you deadbeats can stop Googling Rossy now. He's a born and bred bi-lingual Kelper.

    Same old Marcos, envious of FI success and bitter to boot. Perhaps he would like to post some Argentinian success stories?

    Argentinian success stories?…… There aren't any!

    @3 Marcos

    just for you,

    'A State which has ceased to exercise any authority over a territory cannot, by purely verbal protestations, indefinitely maintain its title against another which for a sufficiently long time has exercised the powers and fulfilled the duties of sovereignty in it,' Charles de Visscher, former head of the ICJ.

    It seems the rest of Latnam are doing business as usual with their neighbours in the S. Atlantic.

    Doesn’t say if Argentina was attending.

    Perhaps they stayed away in protest.

    Once the rest of Latnam realise that the Islanders work like Kryptonite on the Argys, they will probably get invited everywhere.

    @10 Brit Bob

    Thanks for that Bob, perhaps the reason why Argentina won't go to the ICJ is that they've actually done some research on what the ICJ has ruled.

    A new joint venture between Falklands Islands and the Universidad de Magallanes....First it was over agriculture when my friend Tim Miller offered a conference about the issue and keep runing a program for UMAG students to visit and work in his premise......Now, Dr. Humberto Vidal went there to learn about the renewable energy facilitiy operated by Mr. Ross and staff and Mr. Ross visit to P. Arenas to offer speeches about the issue.....That´s the way we must encourage between both, Punta Arenas - Chile and Falklands Islands, our cooperation and strenghthen the ties in all aspects.....These days, to children foot ball teams ahve been visiting us to dispute a big trophy with similar teams of our city and share experiences with our chidren.....Other ocassions, children from our schools have flew to Stanley to share a week with kids from IJCS....
    Congrats for these steps of neighborhood integration....

    @12 Sure thing. They have a 'pretence' of a case that feeds the simple minded. Fact is, a sovereignty claim without a legal case is an 'illegitimate claim.'

    “Falklands experience in energy projects attracts strong interest in Latam conference and Chile”

    So much for LATAM solidarity with the 'dark country'. With the possible exception of Venezuela, does Argentina have any real friends?

    @17 Really? You think this is a lie, my god u are pathetic, why would anyone lie about this. He is over there at the conference after being invited, funny how Argentina doesn't get consulted about providing renewable energy to remote areas, ohhhh wait remote towns in Argentina don't have electricity, or running water LOL. At least you have your Malvinas signs on all your buses.

    Ohhhh and again Marcos, will you answer my question or are you as stupid as pauly?

    Another sign of the importance of the Falklands Islanders. Great to see knowledge sharing amongst like minded neighbours.

    not a surprise that imbeciles like #18, trusts in these kind of propagandistic articles of this 4th class newspaper.

    now, if the imbecile had a bit of a brain, he would understand that renewable energies are 1000% more developed in argentina and brazil.

    and tell that twat ross to stop wearing a wig.
    looks ridiculous.

    @20 lol next time i see him i will tell him. So the fact that i know the man, and know that he is at the conference doesn't really weigh up to you calling it propaganda, I see, so it all must be lies (sarcasm) I put sarcasm in brackets so you would know I'm being sarcastic because I imagine any form of wit is little to much for you. But at least can keep reading your stupid state funded Malvinas signs and politicizing the dead soldiers at Darwin cemetery.

    Well done to Glenn Ross and the Falklands!
    Progress when normal people meet.
    (Unlike Assef's request, Parlasur and latest about Darwin cemetery - Argentina returns to default position, or more accurately - they never changed.
    Nothing to negotiate with Argentina.)

    “he would understand that renewable energies are 1000% more developed in argentina and brazil.”

    Why do you keep needing to develop oil and gas fields then?

    I wasn't aware that Argentina and Brazil produce 40% plus of their total energy demands from renewables?

    The 1000% more renewable energies comes from INDEC right?

    Did Argentina actually contribute anything to this meeting?
    I note that their representative not only studied in the USA, he actually lives there now.
    So, nothing wrong at home then?

    @20 No reply pauly? Come on mate, you must have something else to say? No? Whats that? Your an indoctrinated moron obsessed with a place you despise? You keep commenting on this 4th class site that you seem to hate?

    And again MARCOS, can you answer my question? How is this article propaganda? If your going to post random bullshit on here at least try and back it up.
