Ambassador Castro: UK continues to break UN Malvinas resolutions

The ambassador to the United Kingdom, Alicia Castro, has played down concerns over recent investment in the Argentine armed forces, while criticising the country's government for its insistence in ignoring United Nations resolutions imposed over the issue of the Malvinas Islands.

"The United Kingdom remains isolated from the opinion of the international community, breaking United Nations resolutions through a refusal to reopen talks," the diplomat fired today.

Castro spoke out after a British Sunday newspaper suggested that an increase in defence spending could be linked to a possible invasion of the Malvinas.

"Here in Great Britain a routine renovation of Argentine defence is presented as a threat to the Malvinas Islands, solely as an excuse to continue maintaining a gigantic base in the South Atlantic, to keep buying weapons and justifying the lack of dialogue," she explained.

"Argentina does not represent a hostile threat to the United Kingdom nor the Malvinas Islands and they know that here, the United Kingdom is sure of it."

The ambassador looked back to the invasion led by General Leopoldo Galtieri in 1982 to emphasise that such an event could not happen again: "Argentina will never return to war over the Malvinas. That was a decision taken by the military dictatorship."
