Uruguay says British occupation of Malvinas is ‘latent threat’

Uruguayan government considers the British occupation of Malvinas a latent threat to the region, according to a dossier by the Defense Ministry approved by President José Mujica called “Uruguay: Integrated to the region and open to the world.”

The 42 page document, that will be officially presented next week, states that the “Malvinas situation” affects negatively the south Atlantic, described as a “peaceful and cooperative zone.”

“The situation in Malvinas, which involves a foreign power, represents a latent threat to the region, as it affects negatively the oceanic area in which communications and marine exploitation occur”, the document says.

The dossier, revealed partially today by Uruguayan press, also considers border conflicts between South American countries a second latent threat.

“Regional conflicts weaken the current integration process, generating an arms race that goes against development and endangers mutual trust,” it states.
