Argentine FM: there's no such thing as Falkland islanders

Argentine Foreign Minister said there is no such thing as Falkland islanders as they are British citizens living in the disputed territory.

Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman has said that there is no such thing as Falkland islanders, but they are British citizens living in the disputed territory.

Speaking at a press conference in London on Wednesday, Timerman said “The Falklands islanders do not exist. What exists is British citizens who live in the Islas Malvinas.”

Moreover, he said the United Nations only recognizes two parties in disputes over the Malvinas Islands, Argentine and the UK.

“The United Nations does not recognize a third party in the conflict,” Timerman said.

The Argentinean Foreign Minister refused to attend a London meeting to discuss the Malvinas as his British counterpart William Hague admitted previously that the Falkland government representatives will also be present.

Argentina has repeatedly announced that the islander’s vote does not count as they believe the Royal Navy has expelled the Argentineans who originally lived on the territory and has replaced them with British settlers.

Britain illegally occupied the Malvinas Islands in 1833 and has since refused to leave the territory.
