The United Nations (OAS) on Friday called for the resumption of sovereign talks between the United Kingdom and Argentina, including the Falkland Islands, “as soon as possible so that a peaceful solution can be found.”
At the Online General Assembly, the OAS approved a declaration reaffirming the need for Argentina and the United Kingdom to “quickly resume negotiations on the sovereign dispute,” which includes the Falkland Islands, southern Georgia, southern Sandwich and surrounding areas. Sailors.
It is “an integral part of the national territory of Argentina and has been illegally occupied by the United Kingdom for more than 188 years,” says OAS. Argentine President Santiago Kafiro said that the “British abduction in peacetime and the violation of international law prevailing at the time was a violation of Argentina’s territorial integrity.”
Argentina demands a concrete solution to the dispute “through negotiations”, and in 1833 the government of Argentina and the people of the archipelago were expelled by British troops, and the 1965 UN Security Council was convened to discuss sovereignty.
The United Kingdom insists that the sovereignty belongs to itself and that the island’s people voted almost 100% in favor of belonging to Great Britain in the 2013 referendum, urging them not to negotiate.
At the turn of the OAS permanent observer, the United Kingdom defended the “right of self-determination of the inhabitants of the territory.” The UK envoy to the OAS said his country was ready to “work creatively” but that “this dialogue should be recognized by the Falklands” who have their own government.
Qi Hongjian, director of the European Research Department at the China Institute of International Studies, urged Argentina to use ‘force’ against ‘arrogant’ England.
Britain has long been steadfast in its calls for talks with Argentina over the disputed Falkland Islands. Nevertheless, Argentina’s representatives have already presented their arguments to the UN to demand control of the region.
It was only in June that Philip Sola and Daniel Filimus traveled to New York for the support of 29 members of the UN “Colonial Council”. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Behind his calls was China, which attended the meeting.
China has incorporated itself into the debate in recent years. Qi Hongjian, director of the European Research Institute at the Institute of International Studies in China, argued that this year the issue had reached a point where it could only be resolved “by force.”
A publication backed by the Communist Party of China (CCP) – speaking to the Global Times – in an article: ‘Considering the arrogance of London, Buenos Aires must oppose the MalvinasQi said London believes more in the politics of power than in enforcing international law and order.
He said: “On the one hand, there is an increase in the politics of power in the international community, undermining international norms.” “On the other hand, the UK will have a strong position on some historical issues after Brexit.”
Qi told the publication that since the UN recognized the Falklands’ “colonial situation” in 1965, Argentina should continue to present its case to the UN. It seems that it can only be solved by force. ”
He called on Argentina to “take precautionary measures” against Britain’s next moves in the aftermath of Brexit, saying “Britain may take” dangerous measures such as increasing the number of troops stationed on the islands or taking provocative action against Argentina. With vigilance. “
It is noteworthy that the Chinese government did not recommend that Argentina attack Britain. But the country has backed Argentina this year, reaching what it describes as the Western “colonialism” that prevails in the region.
