The Argentine government criticized in a statement: “It is said that the defense of British military bases in the South Atlantic is not only completely unreasonable, but also a threat to the entire region.”
MADRID (EUROPA PRESS)-The Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday that it had “vigorously rejected” British military exercises and missile launches in the Falkland Islands, which represented “unreasonable troop demonstrations.”
The military exercises conducted in the “illegally occupied Argentine territory” “intentionally deviated from the appeals of many resolutions of the United Nations and other international organizations, which urged Argentina and the United Kingdom to resume negotiations to find a peaceful and final solution to resolve the issues involved in the two countries. Sovereignty disputes over the island issue.”
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the United Kingdom has notified the Argentine embassy on its territory, in the words of the Argentine authorities, that “illegal military exercises” will be held in the area in the next few days.
He also announced that he would condemn the action before the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the International Maritime Organization.
Since 1833, Argentina and the United Kingdom have been fighting for the sovereignty of the Malvinas Islands and the surrounding waters. In 1982, they led Leopoldo Galtiri’s military junta to try to regain it by attacking the United Kingdom. The dominance of these islands was chaired by Margaret Thatcher at the time. In just two months of war, they eventually lost their lives and caused more than 900 deaths.
