    “Colonial presence”: Argentina rejects the visit of British Princess Anne to the Malvinas Islands

    The Foreign Ministry questioned that the sister of King Carlos III arrived “without warning” to the island territory in dispute over sovereignty.

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Argentina rejected on Tuesday the arrival “without warning” of Princess Anne of the British Crown to the Falkland Islands to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1982 war, which was considered by the Government of the South American country as an act “colonial”.

    During her visit to the insular territory in conflict of sovereignty, the sister of King Carlos III visited the Mount Pleasant base of the British forces, in Puerto Argentino.

    “Argentina rejects the official activities of Princess Anne, of the British royal house, in the Malvinas Islands. The activity is given in exercise of British illegal occupation in the Malvinas, South Georgia, South Sandwich Islands and the surrounding maritime areas”, denounced the Foreign Ministry after publishing the News on the social networks of the royal family.

    “Our country once again calls on the United Kingdom to resume bilateral negotiations in compliance with resolution 2065 and other resolutions of the General Assembly and its Special Committee on Decolonization,” the statement said.

    Likewise, the secretary of the Malvinas, Antarctica and South Atlantic, Guillermo Carmona, pointed against the British Crown and recalled the calls of the United Nations Organization (UN) to resume diplomatic negotiations to resolve the conflict.

    “Princess Anne, of the British royal house, arrived in Argentina without warning. Her country violates international law with its colonial presence in the South Atlantic against UN resolutions and world outcry. Maybe that explains the rudeness“said the official.

    The UN Special Committee on Decolonization urged the governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom to resume negotiations on sovereignty.
