    The constructive spirit and pragmatic attitude towards Argentina/United Kingdom relations and shared interests seems to have spilled positively to international forae, for example the latest OAS general assembly declaration regarding the Malvinas Islands, which does not mention “militarization of the South Atlantic or nuclear arms”, as was common in the Kirchner couple years, and rather keeps to the traditional annual disputed sovereignty claim under the umbrella of the United Nations.
