Filmus to head new government agency created to address Malvinas issues

According to an official communiqué released this morning, a new government agency under the scope of the Foreign Ministry has been created by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to address issues related exclusively to the Malvinas Islands, designating former senator Daniel Filmus as its chief.

The creation of the secretariat and Filmus’ appointment were published in today’s edition of the official gazette through decree number 2251/2013.

This new Secretariat will be in charge of implementing foreign policy strategies and actions “for the better defense of the Argentine rights and interests regarding the Malvinas issue,” the Foreign Ministry informed.

Moreover, “it will coordinate with the Foreign Affairs Secretariat the relevant course of action in the multilateral field.” The communiqué added this decision “is a reaffirmation of the profound commitment to a cause which does not belong to Argentines only, but to all the people who fight to end colonialism and for the respect to territorial integrity of independent nations.”
