    Argentina says that sovereignty is “non-negotiable.
    The Islanders say that sovereignty is ”non-negotiable”

    So, what shall we talk about?

    “Any step related to Malvinas must take into account two premises: the sovereignty claim will not be dropped

    There , said it,

    now Britain should just walk away,
    they have no intention of listening or agreeing to nothing without sovereignty attached to it,

    Britain should just walk away, but we wont.

    “ The statement has seen the emergence of two main groupings, those favoring dialogue with the UK, particularly when it comes to the Falklands, and those diehards nationalistic that see it as a surrender of sovereignty claims.”

    The two groups can argue 'til the cows come home, as it will keep them occupied , but on the international scene, it'll make no difference. There is nothing to negotiate, now, or in 25 years.

    Seeing as the Islanders are not able to conduct matters involving Foreign Policy...I would think it has everything to do with Britain...

    “in which the British government only understands it as a negotiation under its terms”

    As opposed to a negotiation Argentine style. “We will negotiate you giving us the islands, and you refuse to negotiate with us! ”

    We should always be open to talk, the UK cannot discuss sovereignty anyway without FIG being present. There are other issues they can address, probably lots of them.

    If Argentina pushes the talks as being about sovereignty, then they are not going to happen and that would be yet another blunder from Argentina.
