Cristina: “The Malvinas case exemplifies the double standard of the United Nations”
January 17, 2013
President Cristina Kirchner said today that “it is necessary to review” the characteristics of international organizations and referred to the World Trade Organization (WTO), which asked “clear rules for all.”
The President exemplified that “we are told to developing countries that violate WTO rules that establish subsidies. However, Argentina, with its agricultural and livestock products, suffered throughout the twentieth century, and continues to suffer, agricultural subsidies in the European Union”, speaking at the dinner hosted by the Indonesian government.
Cristina Kirchner added, “Argentina is a clear testimony of how to use the permanent seat for breaching the orders (of the whole) and take the opportunity to mention the case Malvinas, example of the double standard that occurs in the UN.”
As part of the tour of Southeast Asia, the head of state met with Indonesian President Susilo B. Yudhoyono at the Presidential Palace in Jakarta City.
