The Falkland Islands belong to Uruguay?
February 2, 2013
A book that argues that the Falklands could belong to Uruguay added a new controversy over the archipelago, although historians refute the idea.
The thesis of Uruguayan architect John Ackermann and the Argentine-Uruguayan agricultural engineer Alfredo Villegas is based on a 1841 treaty that authors dusted for his book “The Malvinas are Uruguayan?”.
The agreement signed by Spain and the South American country gave Uruguay the military powers to port of Montevideo on the South Atlantic archipelago, researchers stand and claim that it could still be valid.
“The contribution of documents and the history of all that happened is what we do know. And to analyze it from that point of view it is argued that (the Falklands) are Uruguayan: true,” Ackermann said.
