    Unfortunately, the UK is not driven by political psychobabble. But, by the constraints of international law, which is firmly on her side.

    I also support any “legitimate” rights that Argentina have - the only slight issue for them is that they don’t have any.

    Also, where is all the uproar about the “ anachronistic colonial situation on American soil” in French Guiana . . . ?

    Argentina has NO legitimate rights over the Falkland Islands and surrounding maritime areas.

    The Falklands will remain a BOT for as long as the islanders want it that way, No pathetic little commities have any sway on the matter, Latin American countries couldnt care less about the Falklands and have far more important thing to care about.

    Nine Commonwealth Realms and two Commonwealth Republics are also members of the CELAC. Did they all really also support “the legitimate rights of Argentina in the sovereignty dispute over the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands and the spaces surrounding maritime areas”? It would be interesting to know if ANY of the CELAC members dared to show some solidarity with the Falkland Islands and its inhabitants. What are they really afraid of? Argentina is not as powerful as China (threatening countries which support Taiwan).

    Do notice that CELAC supports “the legitimate rights of Argentina in the sovereignty dispute ...“.

    The keyword is ”legitimate“ - there are none, and ”they” are supported.
