The President ordered to summon the British Ambassador for tomorrow
Argentina, October 9, 2010
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner gave the order to summon the British ambassador in Argentina, Shan Morgan, for a meeting to be held tomorrow where they will provide explanations for the sudden decision to conduct military exercises in a disputed area such as the Falkland/Malvinas Islands.
Through her Twitter, the President considered that the announcement of the UK government is of an “unprecedented gravity” and added that “they inform military exercise with the use of weapons (missiles) in the disputed territory according to United Nations Resolution.”
The chief of government said she found it “serious, very serious” that the British military order “the militarization of the South Atlantic and the illicit and unmasked use of its permanent seat on the UN Security Council.”
Cristina called the English power as “typical nineteenth century colonialism. With an anachronistic use of force in violation of international law. They do not care. A clear example of double standards.”
“We shall communicate this in unison to the UN Secretary General, OAS, UNASUR, and member states of these organizations,” said the President and concluded “Synthesis … pirates for ever?”.
