The UN has urged the United Kingdom and Argentina to “promote dialogue”
In New York, the Decolonization Committee of the UN unanimously adopted a new resolution that urges the governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom to “consolidate the process of resuming dialogue and negotiations to find a peaceful solution.”
The ambassador of Uruguay, José Luis Cancela, spoke with power and declared “This colonial drag that is offensive to Argentina, also offends the entire Latin America.” In turn, the Ambassador of Chile, Octavio Errázuris, said that his country “strongly supports the Argentine sovereign rights over the Malvinas.”
Following speeches in support of the representatives of countries like Brazil, Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba, Mexico, among others, spoke Hector Timerman.
“At my first job as Foreign Minister, I have the honor and privilege to come to this Committee to renew the face of international community once again waived sovereign and indefeasible rights of Argentina over the Falkland Islands,” said the new Argentine foreign minister. In turn, never forgot to mention “environmental threat” posed by oil drilling in the area.
