Opposition presents doubts over Malvinas session at Tierra del Fuego
Members of the opposition presented doubts regarding the agenda that will be debated in a session next Friday in Ushuaia, where the committees of Foreign Affairs and Senate and Lower House Cult will meet over the Malvinas Islands case.
Although they did not present their doubts when the idea of having a session in Tierra del Fuego appeared, the Radical Party, PRO and Dissident Peronism warned that they will not travel to listen to the “official speech” and highlighted that they hope to debate the country’s “position” over the conflict together.
The head of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the Lower House of Congress, Guillermo Carmona, called for a meeting for next Wednesday, where the opposition is willing to present their differences about the encounter.
If they do not reach an agreement, some lawmakers will not be able to travel to Tierra del Fuego province.
The Broad Progressive Front (FAP) did not confirm its attendance, although sources said that the head of the GEN, Margarita Stolbizer, is planning to travel.
The Victory Front stated that if they do not count with the support of the anti-kirchnerite blocs they “will not reach the aims” of the meeting.
“The main objective is to present a declaration of all the parties over the Malvinas issue,” the head of the Kirchnerite bloc, Agustín Rossi, said.
The encounter was organized to reinforce the claims over the Malvinas Islands’ sovereignty.
