Argentina Reiterates Ownership of Occupied Malvinas after Brexit

Argentina Reiterates Ownership of Occupied Malvinas after Brexit

People walk past posters that read, "The Malvinas are Argentine" in downtown Buenos Aires, on March 31, 2016

Argentina says its ownership of Malvinas Islands currently occupied by Britain remains unchanged following Britain’s vote to leave the EU.

Alwaght- Argentinean President, Mauricio Macri, said Monday that his country's claims of sovereignty over Malvinas Islands currently occupied by Britain remains unchanged following Britain's vote to leave the EU.

"Brexit or not, our claim will never change," Macri told reporters in Brussels after talks with European Union leaders.

Britain's vote to leave the EU in a referendum on June 23 has cast uncertainty on the country's global position, including whether European states would continue to back Britain's possession of Malvinas Islands also called Falklands by British occupiers.

 Speaking about Malvinas, Macri added: "That is something long-lasting and we hope one day that we can discuss (the issue with Britain). It doesn't mean that we cannot meanwhile have other cooperation with Britain.

"It is something I have already discussed with Cameron, I hope that with the next English prime minister we can find the space to start this dialogue. It will take years but it is important to start."

Britain and Argentina fought a short but bloody war over the Malvinas in the South Atlantic in 1982 after Argentine troops invaded and then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher sent a naval task force.

The conflict claimed the lives of 649 Argentine soldiers, 255 British troops and three islanders.

In 2013, Malvinas Islands' residents, who are not indigenous Argentineans but migrants brought over by  the occupiers, as expected voted for continued British colonialism.

The Argentine government said the outcome of the referendum would not affect the country's right of sovereignty over the islands. Daniel Filmus, chairman of the Argentine Senate Foreign Affairs committee, said it "does not change at all the Argentine position", while Guillermo Carmona, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Argentina's Chamber of Deputies, said "This has no value at all since Argentina rejects the possibility of self-determination for an implanted population, such as the implanted British population in the Malvinas".
