Timerman calls for Ghana to 'assume its responsibility,' release Libertad frigate
Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman demanded that Ghana “assumes its responsibility” of freeing the Libertad Frigate, which remains impounded in the African country’s port over claims of vulture funds.
Timerman, speaking in brief press conference from the Government house, assured that Argentina could take its claim to the United Nations and stressed the fact that “we will not negotiate with vulture funds.
The Foreign Minister added that the Government will use “all possible legal resources to recover the Frigate” and that the impounding of the naval vessel violates rights of all countries.
