Argentine foreign minister Felipe Solá requested United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to intercede before UK so that the British “consent to resume discussions” over the Falklands/Malvinas Islands.
Argentina's Foreign Ministry Wednesday denied an alleged scoop published by the Buenos Aires daily Infobae, according to which the administration of President Alberto Fernández was eyeing the termination of the bilateral agreements with the United Kingdom regarding the issue of the Falkland Islands.
The General Assembly of the Organization of American States, OAS, supported a declaration on the Falklands/Malvinas question, reaffirming once again the need for the governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom to resume negotiations on the disputed sovereignty with the purpose of finding a peaceful solution to the prolonged controversy.
Argentine president Alberto Fernández again called on the UK to resume dialogue on the South Atlantic Islands and iterated his country's legitimate and imprescriptible sovereignty rights over the Falklands/Malvinas Islands, during his Tuesday address to the United Nations General Assembly on its 75th anniversary.
The display of a stand promoting the disputed “Islas Malvinas” as a British dependency, at the UK pavilion in a Uruguayan agriculture and productions show, was rejected by the Argentine government.
“The Malvinas question unites all Argentines”, according to ex-foreign minister and currently Senator Jorge Taiana, who is also chair of the foreign affairs committee in the Argentine Senate.
Argentine president Alberto Fernandez has repeatedly said that the Malvinas question is a matter of State and his government will continue to pursue sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands until we recover the territory, which is currently usurped by the United Kingdom.
Argentina is again putting pressure on Uruguay, this time on the incoming government which takes office next March first, insisting no UK military aircraft linked to the Falkland Islands be allowed to land in the country's airports and Falklands should not be treated as state with which Uruguay has extensive trade and business exchanges.
The Argentine foreign ministry reported that on Thursday it had reaffirmed before UN Decolonization Committee, C24, the country's 'legitimate rights' over the South Atlantic Islands and surrounding maritime spaces, and called on the United Kingdom to resume negotiations for a peaceful solution to the dispute.
Argentina will reaffirm its legitimate and imprescriptible sovereignty rights over the South Atlantic Islands and its maritime spaces during a meeting on Thursday in New York with members of the United Nations Special Decolonization Committee, or C24, reads a release from the foreign and worship ministry.
