Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman has renewed Argentina’s demands for talks with the UK to discuss the sovereignty of the Malvinas Islands, saying the South American government “hopes” for “international law to be applied.”

Speaking to international media in Havana, Cuba, where he joined President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner at the second summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) this week, Timerman ratified that the Malvinas question is a matter of “colonialism.”

“We denominate it a question of colonialism, just like the United Nations considers it too. It is a special case of colonialism, the seizure of a part of a country by another country,” the official said urging London to abide by the UN 40 resolutions that call for bilateral talks.

In his CELAC opening address, Cuba’s President Raúl Castro expressed regional support to Buenos Aires in the 181-year-old dispute and condemned British exploitation of natural resources in the South Atlantic archipelago.
