Malvinas could cost UK Latin America trade: Argentina

Source: Press TV

Argentine ambassador to London Alicia Castro says Britain can damage its relations with Latin America if it refuses to hand over the “colonial enclave” of Malvinas (Falklands) to Argentina.

“It’s not an Argentinean cause, it’s a regional cause. The United Kingdom, by not wanting to have a proper dialogue with Argentina, it’s turning its back on Latin America as a whole,” Castro said.

“If Britain wants to improve is relations with Latin America, they have to settle this dispute,” she added.

The ambassador also said her country is “very happy” to have “this colonial enclave” to the south adding the islanders would be better off if Argentina ran the territory.

Her comments came as British veterans attended a memorial service in Portsmouth to mark the 30th anniversary of the 1982 war with Britain over the islands.

Currently almost all Latin American and Caribbean countries support Argentina’s sovereignty over the Malvinas.

The leading regional organizations, including Mercosur, The ALBA group and Unasur have already banned ships flying the British flag of the islands from docking at their ports.
