Tierra del Fuego, October 13, 2010
Donatus Keith Saint Aime, president of the Special Decolonization Committee of the UN, will visit the Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego after the formal protest lodged by Argentina after the announcement of the United Kingdom of military exercises in the Malvinas/Falkland Islands.
Fabiana Rios, governor of Tierra del Fuego, announced the official arrival of the key to resolving the conflict that broke less than a week.
In addition to chairing this important committee, Saint Aimee, is the Permanent Representative of Saint Lucia to the UN. Jorge Arguello, Ambassador of Argentina to the body, will be responsible to accompany him on his visit to Argentina.
The arrival of diplomats to the province was at 14:30. At 17, the governor will receive tem and an hour and a half later the representatives will give a press conference in the White Hall of Government House.
Rios reaffirmed her “strong rejection” to the “new unilateral actions” of the United Kingdom in the Malvinas/Falkland Islands that, the governor said, “form part of the provincial territory.”
Also, the governor highlighted the “indispensable and inalienable legitimate rights over the Malvinas, South Georgia, South Sandwich and their surrounding maritime spaces” that correspond to Tierra del Fuego by the law 26,552.
Meanwhile, Carolina Lavori, International Relations Secretary of Tierra del Fuego, expressed her displeasure with the situation: “The British government seeks to systematically violate international guidelines, according to the various pronouncements of the UN with respect to the Malvinas question”, referring to the Resolution 31/49 of the body, which urges the parties not to innovate in decisions regarding the disputed territories.
