Macri, Massa would be 'flexible' with London's interests in Malvinas
"Acknowledgement from the parties make discoveries non-essential," the cabinet chief sais when he asked to comment on the statements by British minister Hugo Swire who considered opposition’s Massa and Macri would have a “more realistic and mature” vision over the Malvinas Islands dispute than the Kirchnerite administration.
Addressing reporters at the government house this morning, Jorge Capitanich assured that the arrival of either Sergio Massa or Mauricio Macri to the government here as Swire publicly hoped for, involves UK’s hopes for “flexibility” in the bilateral row – a “flexibility” that does not seem to loom on the horizon as Buenos Aires continues to call the coalition government of British Prime Minister David Cameron to abide by UN resolutions that urge both parties to hold talks over the sovereignty of the resource-rich archipelago.
On Thursday, British Minister of State for the Foreign Office Hugo Swire said London would rather sit at the negotiating table with Sergio Massa or Mauricio Macri to discuss the sovereignty of the Malvinas Islands. Swire alleged the representatives of Argentina’s opposition would show a “more mature vision” over the bilateral dispute than the Kirchnerite government.
