After British Secretary James Cleverly announced Sunday that he would be traveling to the Falklands to show his support for the Islanders' self-determination, the Argentine government replied that it was an “unnecessary provocation.”
Only a Conservative government will guarantee the interests of those who depend on British leadership, such as the brave people of Ukraine facing Russian aggression, Cleverly had said at the Conservative Party Conference. His visit would be the first by a British cabinet minister to the islands since 2016.

Argentina's Secretary of Malvinas, Antarctica and South Atlantic, Guillermo Carmona replied on X (formerly Twitter) that Cleverly's presence in the South Atlantic would warrant formal diplomatic protests and due repudiation from Buenos Aires.
As usual, when British Conservatives have elections coming up they are prone to showcasing anachronistic and decadent colonial imperialism, he also wrote while insisting that the United Kingdom should resume sovereignty negotiations in accordance with numerous United Nations resolutions.
Instead of accepting the proposal of Foreign Minister @SantiagoCafiero for dialogue on a renewed agenda with a focus on the issue of sovereignty and adjusted to international law, Cleverly chooses to continue compromising the damaged reputation of his country on the Malvinas Question, Carmona added before warning London that We will be waiting for you with formal diplomatic protests and due repudiation of an action that is foreshadowed as an unnecessary provocation that defies international law.
El canciller británico @JamesCleverly anunció que visitará a las #Malvinas, es decir a la #Argentina. Como es habitual, cuando a los conservadores británicos se les aproximan elecciones se les da por exhibir el anacrónico y decadente imperialismo colonial. https://t.co/k1TVSQjPYz— Guillermo Carmona (@grcarmonac) October 2, 2023
