    What has Argentina got to do with Spain and Gibraltar? That is a Spanish-Gibraltarian dispute and nothing to do with Argentina.

    “Illegal fishing in the Malvinas area”

    “Please refresh me as I can´t recall any such violation of international law.
    Sr. Carmona is simply trolling without a license.

    “Again the Kosovo contingent training at MPA in Falklands …”
    Which is absolutely none of Argentina´s business, and clearly is a breach of international law.

    Recalling the duty of States to refrain in their international relations from military, political, economic or any other form of coercion aimed against the political independence or territorial integrity of any State,
    Considering it essential that all States shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, or in any other manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations,
    Considering it equally essential that all States shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in accordance with the Charter, a major obstacle to the promotion of international peace and security, Convinced that the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples constitutes a significant contribution to contemporary international law, and that its effective application is of paramount importance for the promotion of friendly relations among States, based on respect for the principle of sovereign equality,
    Convinced in consequence that any attempt aimed at the partial or total disruption of the national unity and territorial integrity of a State or country or at its political independence is incompatible with the purposes and principles of the Charter”
