In a speech at the opening of the 140th ordinary session of Congress, he recalled the 40th anniversary of the South Atlantic conflict, so the government launched the agenda for the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War, a territory usurped in 1833.

“I will say it again: the Falkland Islands were, are and will be part of Argentina,” the president said amid applauses and added that he is convinced that territory “unites us in a national cause that convenes and mobilizes the people.”

He recalled that to honor the soldiers who were killed in the Falklands War the government must sustain the policy of identification of the soldiers who died in that part of the national territory.

“We have extended to the International Committee of the Red Cross Argentina’s interest in the materialization of a third phase to identify the soldiers who were killed in the war within the framework of the Humanitarian Project Plan, as part of an initiative that was launched in 2012 and has been continued by successive administrations,” he noted.

In his speech, in which he called to carry out several projects for this legislative cycle, he spoke about the economy, health, judicial reform, equality and the need for unity.

Regarding justice, he urged to reform the judicial service and stressed that the composition and work of the Supreme Court must be analyzed.
