BRASILIA — The global geopolitical situation shaped by the war in Ukraine is an opportunity for Argentina to continue to support its sovereignty claims over the British-run Falkland Islands, Argentine officials say Reuters told to

Falklands (Malvinas) Executive Director Guillermo Carmona said Wednesday that he would bolster support for his country's claim to the South Atlantic islands where Britain and Argentina fought a brief war 40 years ago. I started visiting countries.

Argentina has long sought to resume negotiations over the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, but as long as the islanders wish to remain British, It's not on the UK table. "In the face of this reticence, we are tenacious," Carmona said in an interview. "We are trying to strengthen our international position and take advantage of the current global situation." Carmona said she rarely talks about that much.

"This shows a double standard, with some Western countries such as the UK applying one standard to Europe and another to South America," he said. It added that Britain had violated Argentina's territorial integrity since it took control of the country.

Officials, who are next on their way to Uruguay and Chile, said Argentina had the support of 77 countries and China at the UN Commission on Decolonization. For the first time in the last session, Africa voted in favor of Argentina's request to return to negotiations.

"Our diplomatic offensive seeks to reposition the Falklands issue as his 21st-century anachronistic case of colonialism," he said.

Brazil this year allowed RAF planes to refuel en route to the Falklands, recognizing Britain's legitimacy of the humanitarian flight. For Carmona, Brazil's support for Argentina's claims remains solid as ever.
