    I do not see the Major oil companies currently drilling in the Argentinian Sea, namely Premier oil, Noble, Edison, Rockhopper, Falkland oil and gas, Borders and Southern being present or were they not invited to attend? Maybe they would be arrested as per Kristinas decree in 2010. No arrests yet?

    Any county within 300 miles of Argentina should be very careful in declaring anything of value, be it oil , gas , or minerals ,
    as there is a slight chance, no matter how slight, that CFK may well come a visiting with her famous CLAIM PAD,

    so be advised, just in case in the future you find anything of value...lol
