Argentina defends its right over Malvinas Islands

Buenos Aires, Apr 1 (Prensa Latina) Argentina will not give up until it recovers its full sovereignty over the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands, President Alberto Fernandez, who advocates dialogue with the United Kingdom to solve a dispute that began in 1833, noted on Friday.

In an interview with BBC News World, the president ratified his nation’s commitment to peaceful means and respect for international law, but ruled out the possibility of agreeing on a shared administration of the territory or any other alternative that would violate his country’s rights.

A few hours before commemorating the 40th anniversary of the beginning of the Malvinas War, Fernandez questioned London’s non-compliance with a resolution approved by the United Nations in 1965, which urges both parties to dialogue.

He reiterated that the archipelago is a continuity of Argentina’s continental shelf.

Those are our lands, we occupied them before the British usurped them in 1833 and since then we have been claiming them, he affirmed.

The president considered it unlikely that the United Kingdom will sit down at the negotiating table, but he pointed out that this does not mean that his government will give up the defense of Argentina’s rights over the islands.

I will keep on trying. It is not an economic issue, but a claim for the memory of our ancestors. It was a war declared by a dictatorship that sent brave young men to fight in very unequal situations. Those who commanded the war were genocidal, but those who died in the Malvinas were heroes, he assured.
