'UN doesn’t recognize Malvinas islanders’ right of self determination,’ Timerman

Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman said that "the United Nations does not recognize Malvinas islanders’ right of self determination" and reiterated the request to the British government to “sit down and negotiate, as it was established by the UN."

During an interview published by Sunday’s Edition of Página12 newspaper, the Minister remarked that “According to the UN, the only ones who can negotiate are Great Britain and Argentina. Only the two countries can speak as litigants, and not the islanders.”

Likewise, Timerman asked the UK to "sit down and negotiate" and remembered that Argentina “is already sit and waiting."

The minister also also warned that "if the most powerful countries do not comply with the UN, then the UN will cease to have any meaning at all."

Asked about the US government statement on the situation of the Malvinas, Timerman said to be glad with it as "the United States recognized that there is a pending bilateral sovereignty issue between Argentina and the United Kingdom.”

"The US position is also a wake-up call to the British government to abandon the militaristic path and accept to sit down and start negotiations.”
