Argentina’s new President Javier Milei is demanding that the Falkland Islands are returned which is “non-negotiable.”
During the election campaign there were concerns inside the Foreign Office over the right wing populist as during the elections he promised to “get the Falklands back” as the “Malvinas are Argentine.”
Milei claimed that Margret Thatcher was one of the “great leaders in the history of humanity” and has said that the Falkland Islands issues “cannot be ignored.”
Milei told La Nacion, “What do I propose? Argentina’s sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands is non-negotiable. The Malvinas are Argentine.
“Now we have to see how we are going to get them back. It is clear that the war option is not a solution.
“What we are proposing is to move towards a solution like the one England had with China over the Hong Kong issue and that in this context the position of the people who live on the islands cannot be ignored.
“You cannot deny that those people are there. You cannot disregard those human beings.
“You have to negotiate with Britain and consider the views of the people who live on the islands.
“If I am saying that the Malvinas are Argentine, why are there any doubts? I am saying something that is in the national constitution.
“We are looking for a solution for the Malvinas Islands to return to Argentina through diplomacy, a solution that is viable, that is achievable.”
