    Seems to have been a gigantic u-turn...

    Argentina's Continental Shelf Claims - The UN CLCS Commission -March 2016 newspapers reported that the whole of Argentina's submission has been endorsed by the Commission of the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) with such headlines as By a ruling of the UN, Argentina will extend its maritime platform (Politica Argentina) ; New map of the maritime platform reaffirms the sovereignty of Malvinas with UN endorsement (ElCronista); Argentina enlarges its territory 35%, with a UN endorsement ...(La Capital). To add to this euphoric atmosphere the Argentine Foreign Minister stated, ''This is a historic opportunity for Argentina. We have taken a great step in the demarcation of the outer limit of our continental shelf; the most extensive boundary of Argentina and our border with humanity,'' Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra told La Nacion, which tomorrow will publicly announce the details of this resolution. (Susana Malcorra, quoted by Dinatale M, La Nacion, Argentina, 27 March 2016). The Argentine government called the decision a ''resounding success'', which was determined in early March in New York and supports the Argentine position on the existence of a dispute between the two countries, which will enable the country to move forward on projects offshore oil fields over areas not yet explored. This will involve expanding the oil business, as the maritime continental shelf space extends to Argentina.(UN endorsement of an Argentine proposal on Falklands, A Commission Adopted for the First Time the Recommendations on the Outer Limits of the Continental Shelf and Admitted the Dispute with Great Britain, Dinatale M, La Nacion, Argentina 27 March 2016)
