Argentina reacts to British answer on Malvinas sovereignty

A demonstrator sets a copy of the Buenos Aires Herald and a Union Jack flag

Tensions flared between Argentina and the UK following President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s open letter to Prime Minister David Cameron urging him to reopen the Malvinas Islands sovereignty talks and The Sun's advert published in yesterday's Herald.

On Friday, British newspaper The Sun ran an advert on the Herald adressed to the Head of State warning her keep her “hands off” Malvinas. During the day, left wing demonstrators burnt Union Flags and copies of the newspaper to protest against the British stance on the dispute of the South Atlantic archipelago outside the British Embassy in Buenos Aires City.

A group of islanders who named themselves "Falklanders United" addressed a letter to President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

“For many years YOU have been publicly expressing far too readily what YOU think should happen to OUR home, the Falkland Islands.

“We live here because we want to. Our home is a British Overseas Territory, not a colony as you seemingly wish to convince people.

“Through our right to self-determination as enshrined by the United Nations we can choose to associate ourselves with whomever we so choose. We choose to maintain our relationship with the United Kingdom in this way.”
