    Fortunately, international law requirements of the UK as a 'coastal-state' are not subject to Argentine whims. As they are already recognised under UNCLOS.
    “The rights of coastal States to regulate and exploit areas of the ocean under their jurisdiction are one the foundations of the LOSC.”

    Lol. Doesn't recognise the UK as a coastal state... it's an island! The UK has a longer coastline than Argentina.

    And I see the Peronists are as paranoid as ever. They really need to take a chill pill.

    “Non-addictive” ...?

    1) The fisheries “Cooperation” with them Engrish was just a red heering... A dead one by now...
    2) The inaugural flight from Sao Paolo to Engrish Occupied Malvinas was conveniently moved from October (Presidential elections in Argieland) to “Somewhere in November”...
    3) That leaves us time to concentrate our attention on Engrish Tullow Oil issue...

    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    “Law of the Sea
    Sovereign Immunity
    It is a long-standing rule of international law that one sovereign State does not have authority over another sovereign State and that all States are equals. This underlies the concept of sovereign immunity. Sovereign immunity in international law makes one State’s property immune from interference by another State in two ways: jurisdictional immunity, which limits the adjudicatory power of national courts against a foreign State, and enforcement immunity, which limits the taking of or interference with State property by executive authorities of foreign States.”

    REF: Sovereign Immunity

    The laws of the jungle are
    - Survival of the fittest
    - those with might are right AND have the right

    If you still imagine that you are NOT in a jungle; pl. change the drug which you are addicted to!
