The UK government is looking forward to working with the new government of Argentina and hopes the people of the Falkland Islands will not suffer the bellicosity shown by the current administration, said Foreign Office minister Hugo Swire in Parliament.
The minister added that he expects a similar attitude from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his administration, since Canada has been a strong supporter of Falkland Islands right to self determination.
The statement came in response to Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell, who asked the government to call on new Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau to continue his country's support for the Falkland Islanders' right to self-determination when he visits the UK this week.
We look forward to working with the new government of Argentina who hopefully will not suffer from the bullying and bellicosity shown by the former government of Argentina to the people of the Falkland Islands minister Swire told the House of Commons.
The minister also announced that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was on his way to London to meet PM David Cameron and the Queen, before travelling on to the Commonwealth heads of government meeting in Valetta, Malta.
You can be reassured we expect the same from Prime Minister Trudeau, regarding support for the Falklands' people right to self determination.
We expect exactly the same relationship. It's an ancient and potent relationship between ourselves and Canada.
On Sunday business friendly Mauricio Macri was elected president of Argentina following a much disputed runoff. Macri's victory in the presidential election was the first in more than a decade for Argentina's centre-right opposition and ends the rule of the Peronist Party. It was also the first time the double turn or 'balotage' system was implemented in Argentina since the 1973 electoral reform.
Macri who is the outgoing mayor of Buenos Aires City, will take control of the presidency on 10 December.
Argentina has for decades claimed sovereignty over the Falkland islands, but the British government says the claim has no basis in international law and should be withdrawn. The Foreign office states that we support the people of the Falkland Islands as they determine their own political and economic future.
Furthermore, the Falklands will remain as a British Overseas Territory as long as the Islanders so decide. In 2013, Falkland Islanders took part in a referendum, voting by 1,513 to three to remain a British overseas territory.
