    The important facts:

    In 2016 we were both deputy foreign ministers of our two countries and participated in detailed negotiations on bilateral relations, in particular referred to the Falkland Islands“.

    ”As a result additional flights to the Islands were negotiated and total access was granted at the Argentine military cemetery at Darwin so that Argentina with DNA tests could identify the soldiers buried there“.

    Landmark Deal (@Declassified) reduced to Joint Statement.

    Which is all it was. A statement of intent. The deals that followed, were the ones that needed signatures and, I assume, ratification (?).

    Storm in a teacup.

    Oh dear, so Argentina is also now refusing the LATAM flight to stop at Cordoba as well, because the Falklands government will not allow them to use an Argentine-flagged airline. And now this. What a pity.
