The chair of Argentina's Lower House Foreign Affairs Committee Elisa Carrió has supported president Mauricio Macri's “nonnegotiable” stance on the Falklands/Malvinas sovereignty dispute and attributed the Argentina/UK joint statement controversy to “minor questions of communication”, nevertheless she summoned deputy foreign minister Carlos Foradori to Congress next Wednesday.

    GOV.UK statement 13 September 2016 Section 10 said and I quote “ Both governments agreed that the formula on sovereignty in paragraph 2 of the Joint Statement of 19 October 1989 applies to this Joint Communique and to its consequences.” End quote.
    Section 2 (1) states and I quote ”Nothing in the conduct of content of the present meeting or of any similar subsequent meetings shall be interpreted as: ( a ) A change in the position of the United Kingdom with regard to sovereignty or territorial and maritime jurisdiction over the Falklands, south Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands and the surrounding maritime areas ”
    What is not to understand?

    Golf, they get easily over excited and confused. Just the mere mention of the Islands and the blinkers come down. It is the indoctrination showing through, let's call it the 'Light Blue Mist descending', it descends at the slightest mention of the 'Falklands', as it is designed to do so and stops them from functioning with any rationality or common sense.

    ”no (Malvinas) sovereignty negotiations“ yep, at least they understand one thing. So tell us Argentina, when you next go to the C24, will you be asking for the UK to sit and 'dialogue' about the Falklands sovereignty.? You are going to look a little stupid now though and a bit embarrassing for your C24 friends. Will they criticise the UK for not unilaterally negotiating with themselves in the future..

    Two dumb blondes together I see, they certainly grow big girls in congress.

    Is that to discourage the males or does the fact that most of the males lack balls negate the need?

    Pity the Iranians never bombed that lot instead of a bunch of peaceful Jews.

    The only way these idiots will get the Falkland's is if they try to take them,

    anything else is pure deluded dreaming.

    Good news. Congress view that there should be “no yield or transfer on the Malvinas question” is entirely in agreement with the views of the Islanders.

    Peace and harmony can be declared.
