    “The Falklands problem is not the Islanders or the English, but us Argentines,” points out Cisneros

    “Until Argentina does not become a serious, reliable, respected country with friends, there is no chance of having the Islands returned,” Andres Cisneros

    The Falklands/Malvinas will eventually be returned to Argentina but that is going to be a long, long road, forecasted Andres Cisneros a retired Argentine diplomat expert in the Falklands/Malvinas dispute and deputy foreign minister with Guido Di Tella in the nineties.

    Argentina's chances of advancing Malvinas claim not enhanced by Brexit, says Cisneros

     “Even weakened, you can't force the UK to engage in sovereignty discussions. Not even inside or outside of the EU. And we are far from that”, said Cisneros

    The Leave victory in UK and its impact on the Falklands and Argentina's ongoing claim over the Islands was addressed by Argentine academics and diplomats. Probably the man with most experience and knowledge in the trilateral relation between London, Buenos Aires and the Falklands is former Deputy foreign minister Andres Cisneros, who worked next to Guido Di Tella.

    Falklands/Malvinas, an advance to celebrate

    Cisneros was a leading member of former foreign minister Di Tella's diplomatic team

    By Andrés Cisneros (*) - With the reinstatement of the 'impasse' on the issue of the Malvinas Islands, the Argentine government has made a wise decision. Not only because it puts in course again something proven useful in the past, but also because, looking into the future, there is no better path to the solution of the problem. It's not the mere restoration of a policy (good or bad) which already happened.

    Malvinas: when Argentina is strong and united, world public opinion will back us

    Andres Cisneros was deputy foreign minister to Guido di Tella in the nineties when Argentina was ruled by president Carlos Menem

    The meeting of the Argentine president with the British prime minister in Davos was “a good thing” a symptom that we are back on the right political track, which has been applied before: to continue claiming sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands, without having to spoil good relations, investments, trade, and with time and circumstances even consider joint undertakings.

    Cobos Falklands' trip receives praise: challenge for all Argentina presidential hopefuls

    The former vice-president of Cristina Fernandez seems very fond of photos as the tours the Falklands

    Despite Argentina's news agenda is absorbed by the World Cup, another possible default and the indictment for corruption of Vice-president Amado Boudou, the Argentine media still has time to talk about former vice-president and presidential hopeful Julio Cleto Cobos' current trip to the Falkland Islands.

    Falklands Facts

    In his reply of 19 February to my letter of the 12th, Mr. Cisneros says “the worst thing we can do is quibble and distract ourselves from the main problem”. But it is not a “quibble” to state simple facts, as I did in my letter. So I suggest we get a few facts straight – not unilateral facts, but straightforward historical facts.

    Unilateral Fact II

    Mr. Andres Cisneros’s reply to the article “Unilateral Facts” by Dr. Graham Pascoe and myself last Sunday in the BA Herald, (Jan 21st and Feb 6th in MP), does not answer our points adequately. Our article was specifically about Argentina’s hypocrisy in using UN Resolution 31/49 to criticise Britain’s acts as “unilateral”. Instead he launches a general anti-British diatribe, and makes a number of errors. The worst are as follows.

    Unilateral facts, indeed

    The installation of the semi-submersible oil drilling rig the Ocean Guardian under tow in British coastal waters north of the Malvinas prompted harsh criticism from Argentine officials last year

    By Andrés Cisneros for the Herald

    Peter Pepper and Graham Pascoe, who have spent years writing profusely on the issue, have just written a new article seeking to enlighten us on Malvinas rights.
