The speech he gave, professed to give the history of the Falkland Islands and Argentina’s claim.
However, what he gave contained errors which led to a overwhelmingly false account of the history.
This speech resulted in the passing of Resolution 2065 (XX) by the UN General Assembly in 1965.
Jose Maria Ruda’s speech contained at least 60 historical errors.
However, I will not list all of these just the more important of these..
One of these untruths, was that Britain “took” Saint Helena in 1815, whereas it was 1659.
Others, were that the USS Lexington visited in May 1831 (it was December); that knowledge of the existence of the Falklands was uncertain in Britain until the mid-18th century (it was not); that 17th and 18th century Anglo-Spanish treaties excluded Britain from the Falklands (they did not); and that in 1820 David Jewett announced that Argentine fishing regulations would apply in the islands (he did not).
Later in 1965, Argentina’s new UN representative, Bonifacio Del Carril, repeated many of these errors again…
