Argentina’s foreign minister, Santiago Cafiero, “drafted a proposal to resume negotiations for sovereignty in the Malvinas question”, along with James Cleverley, the British secretary of state for foreign affairs, on the sidelines of the G20 foreign ministers’ summit in India. In a meeting in the framework, reported the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Argentina.

The British response, which seemed to close the discussion on sovereignty, came quickly.

The United Kingdom’s Ambassador to Argentina, Christy Hayes, expressed regret at the Argentine government’s decision to finalize an agreement that seeks to strengthen the link between the two countries.

“In 2016, Argentina and the United Kingdom reached a historic agreement that, among other things, began the process of identifying the fallen on the islands after more than 30 years,” Hayes said on his Twitter account.

“We regret that the Government of Argentina has now decided to abandon this important agreement.”
