Britain comes to plundering our natural resources, Argentine President says
Buenos Aires, September 22, 2010.- President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner thanked by a video to the Uruguay President Pepe Mujica to prevent the entry of a British warship in Montevideo, which was bound for the Falkland Islands / Islas Malvinas.
“Hi Pepe. Pepe is Pepe Mujica, the president of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay. I want to thank, on behalf of all Argentines, the huge sign that you had to prevent that a British ship could source from Uruguayan ports. Over there I read that you had explained to the British ambassador that you want to preserve relations with Argentina. But in addition, I think that it is also a joint defense of the region because they also come to pillage our natural resources,” Cristina Fernandez said from her office in Casa Rosada.
The president said, referring to the controversy of predation: “Today may be oil, tomorrow may be fishing. Today is Argentina. Tomorrow may be Uruguay or any other country in South America, when they are missing something up there.”
She considered that the Malvinas case involves Latin America. “Thank you because I know you do it in heart and also thank all the people of Uruguay for the eternal solidarity that they always have had with our eternal question, which is Malvinas. A question for all people from South America. Thank you,” the message concludes.
