Uruguay admits 'Falklands mistake,' opens investigation

Today, Mujica ordered an administrative inquiry to be carried out and reiterated the country’s support for the argentine claim.

The government of neighbouring country Uruguay admitted today "a mistake" has been made when an official document was issued calling the Malvinas Islands, a disputed territory, "Falklands."

The small diplomatic slip-up in the Uruguayan government has ignited the Malvinas Islands controversy once again. The statement is featured in a decree signed by President José “Pepe” Mujíca on June 25th.

The document, issued by Uruguayan Foreign Ministry, updates the schedule of diplomatic mission visits so they are accommodated to the requirements of citizens living abroad.

Today, Mujica ordered an administrative inquiry to be carried out and reiterated the country’s support for the argentine claim.

“There is not a shadow of doubt when it comes to the Uruguayan support for the Argentine claim, neither any hesitation about its denomination,” the Uruguayan Foreign Office said in a statement today.

Uruguayan ambassador to Buenos Aires Guillermo Pomi also told the neighboring nation press his country’s position was “very clear” and said the “mistake was corrected as soon as it was detected.”
