Argentina pulls out of Falkland Islands deal with UK

March 3, 2023, 01:03 – Public Information Service – TEH –

Argentine Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero said Buenos Aires had notified London of the termination of the Foradori-Duncan agreement regarding the conduct of administrative and economic activities in the Falkland Islands.

On his Twitter page, Cafiero posted the following message: “Argentina announced the decision to end the Foradori-Duncan pact, concluded in 2016. I did so during a meeting with the British Foreign Secretary James Cleverley at the G20 Foreign Ministers meeting in New Delhi.”

Cleverley responded to Argentina’s proposal to resume negotiations over ownership of the Falkland Islands (Malvinas), saying they are British.

“The people of the islands have the right to decide their future – they have decided to remain a British Overseas Territory,” the Chief Minister stressed.

It should be noted that Britain annexed the Falkland Islands in 1833 and for almost 200 years they were the subject of a territorial dispute between London and Buenos Aires.

As the Public News Service reported earlier, Stuart Carr, columnist for the UK edition of Mail Online, said the UK could lose Northern Ireland forever.
