Great Britain accepted a meeting with Argentina but with the presence of the kelpers
England, February 4, 2013
William Hague, Foreign Minister of Great Britain, said that “remains open to a meeting with Argentine Foreign Minister”, but again demanded the presence of the kelpers.
“For Mr. Timerman, the offer of a meeting is still open, but of course in any discussion of the inhabitants of the Falklands (Malvinas Islands) is very important for these to be present,” said Hague.
The statements were made during his visit through Brazil, accompanied by his counterpart Antonio Patriota.
It should be noted that in the same conference, the Brazilian foreign minister said his country, like the rest of Mercosur, the South American nations and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) “supports the sovereignty of Argentina and dialogue between Argentina and UK, under the auspices of the United Nations.”
It should also be noted that before the Hague declaration, Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman reiterated that “he will not accept to have a meeting with the illegal government of the Falklands”.
“We came from Argentina to show that we are peaceful and democratic, and that we are waiting for England to accept the order of these 190 countries and have a meeting with us” Timerman said.
