Argentina expressed concern and requested specific measures from Brazilian authorities because of the presence in Sao Paulo at the World Trade Market, Latin America fair, of a Falkland Islands' stand.
The Argentine foreign ministry through its embassy in Brasilia presented a note on Tuesday afternoon to Brazilian authorities expressing its concern regarding a stand with a non recognized toponymy Falkland Islands at the two days WTM fair in Sao Paulo.
The Argentine note requests specific measures against the stand. Besides rejecting its presence, the Argentine government also feels discouraged by the presence of members belonging to illegitimate entities or authorities from the Islands, as well as the exhibition of any kind of political/jurisdictional material in the stand, be it brochures, maps, posters or billboards.
World Travel Market Latin America is one of the great tourism fairs in the world. It's a registered brand, from Reed Exhibitions Limited, a company located in England and Wales with its main commercial activity is organizing fairs and exhibitions.
