British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Monday extended his government's congratulations to the Argentine elected president Javier Milei on his Sunday's windfall victory, but also affirmed that the dispute over the Falklands-Malvinas Islands sovereignty is a resolved issue.
Argentine President Alberto Fernández asked United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres to “renew the good offices efforts” with the United Kingdom regarding the Malvinas/Falklands question, it was reported in New York.

“I reiterate it, I repeat it and I reaffirm it, the Islanders living in the Falklands/Malvinas will have their rights respected if Milei becomes Argentine president,” emphasized Diana Mondino underlining her statements in an interview with The Telegraph which was considered highly controversial and criticized in Argentina by politicians and the media.
“I reiterate it, I repeat it and I reaffirm it, the Islanders living in the Falklands/Malvinas will have their rights respected if Milei becomes president,” emphasized Diana Mondino, most probably foreign minister of Javier Milei, if he is finally elected as the next Argentine occupant of the Pink House in Buenos Aires in the October/November election.
Outgoing Chinese ambassador in Argentina, Zou Xiaoli again expressed support for the Argentine government's position regarding its sovereignty claim over the Falkland Islands.
Argentine Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero sent a message to his British colleague James Cleverly saying that “the UK has been violating Argentina's territorial integrity for 190 years.” The British government considered Thursday that a “regrettable choice of words” had been made.
Argentine immigration authorities Wednesday granted residence to Cuban migrant Yamila Socorro Molina, who lives in the Malvinas/Falkland Islands, it was reported in Buenos Aires. Migrations Director Florencia Carignano said it was a “historical precedent.”
The Argentine government's victory cheering and bragging about a joint declaration from two continents on the Falklands/Malvinas issue has turned out to be a brief midwinter dream. This was strongly confirmed by the British Foreign Office and the European Union.
Argentina has announced it will finance 130 million Pesos (some US$ 250,000 at the current free market exchange rate) for Project EAAF 2023 which refers to Phase 3 of the Humanitarian Project for the identification of fallen combatants buried in the Falkland Islands.
