There are myriad conflicting claims globally for wide swathes of the continental shelves, so this Argentine claim is probably seen as fairly simple. Go on UN, sort out all the competing claims for the North Pole, or the South China Sea. See what I mean!

Here's some interesting info on the claims

Here are all the other claims You can look up the Argentinean claim and see the diplomatic waffle.

On the Falklands and South Georgia et al. I would advise people not research the Argentine history, which is highly tainted by inaccuracy.

It's ridiculous is all, and the state/government of Argentina is a moot point now as there is no way they will take the islands without major help.
Help no other nation is offering. Unlucky, perhaps the established society living on the islands can now plan their own futures...with the help of the UK government and territorial oil revenue lol.

But surely due to the fact that the population is transplanted and of British origin it's not quite that straight forward?


Only about 1.4% of the population of Argentina is of native origin.

First I think that it is important to note that this is not a UN declaration nor a resolution. It is the results from the study of a commission who notes that their is a dispute in ownership of the Falklands and never settles that issue. It holds no weight, not even a resolution does either. The current stance of the UN General Assembly is the issue should be settled peacefully between the UK and Argentina.

With Argentina's current push to reconcile with the US I would not expect much to come of this, it is after a requested study from 2009.

The UN is an abomination trying to keep everyone at war and divided in quagmires.

Disband the UN.

What a crock. They arent ineffective and useless, that is their mission...to make everyone ineffective and useless.

They are once again brewing war between two peoples. It is settled. Has been for a while.

Why even bring this up again?

I offer myself to teach English to the Argies, and Spanish to the Falkland islanders.

Win win for me.

I am truly egocentric btw, just sayin'.

I could not have that better myself Sir.

If I was 12 years old and had no idea what I was talking about that is.

If not I would have tried to say something bore beneficial to my argument.

That is just my own opinion however and you may choose to counter any argument in anyway you see fit.


Dude.

LOL argentina owns the falkland island slol. The waters next to them yes but the Islands? NOPE.

I'm sure that behind the UN declaration is a decision to return the Falklands to Argentina so Argentina can pay it debt to the banks with oil and gas revenue.

This is not the same / similar committee that tried to tell the UK Assange was free to leave was it.

I doubt the ruling will go anywhere. Argentina lost the first time they tried there luck and will not succeed the 2nd go around.

and when was Argentina founded? What nation was responsible for European settlements at the time? Ironic Argentina lays claim to an island the British owned prior to the creation of Argentina. Argentina had a chance to regain the Falklands by allowing a self determination vote under the UN charter.

Argentina refused because they knew they would not win the vote.

Spain has more of a claim to the Falklands than Argentina does. Spain lives in the real world where Argentina does not.

If we are going to go down this road then Kaliningrad should be returned to Germany and the Kuril islands to Japan.

Yet Spain, who claim Gibraltar another British Overseas Territory that wants to remain British, cynically supports Argentina, while conveniently forgetting their own colonies in Africa!

It's a mad world. Thankfully the British are at least consistent!
