    Regarding Falklands oil exploration, Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana stated in February 2010, that his Government would take 'all measures necessary to preserve our rights' and also reiterated that Argentina had a 'permanent claim' on the islands, saying 'Buenos Aires would complain to the UN over the oil project and might take the case to the International Courts of Justice in the Hague.'

    All good news, the progress is steady and continues for the long term benefit of Falkland Islanders. Hopefully Uruguayan, Chilean and Brazilian companies will also benefit from the increased activity.
