Two elected members of the Falkland Islands’ Legislative Assembly will be travelling to London this weekend to be available to take part in any discussions regarding the Islands when Argentine Foreign minister Hector Timerman meets with Foreign Secretary William Hague, according to a release from Gilbert House, Stanley.

The Falklands’ elected government has repeatedly stated it is willing to meet with the government of Argentina in order to make the people of the Islands views clear and to discuss matters of mutual interest including fisheries and communications.

Such willingness was again openly displayed by Members of the Legislative Assembly in their letter of 2012 to President Cristina Fernandez, details of which were made public on 15 June 2012.

Earlier this week the Argentine embassy in the UK announced that Foreign minister Timerman will be taking the Falklands/Malvinas sovereignty claim to London in a scheduled event February 6/7 with “outstanding figures from 18 European countries that have been calling for a resumption of (UK-Argentina) negotiations”.

Taking advantage of his trip to the UK, minister Timerman requested a meeting with Foreign Secretary Hague, who happily accepted and anticipated he would raise London’s serious concerns about Argentina’s policy towards the Falkland Islands.

Likewise Mr Hague also underlined that for any conversation on Falkland Islands issues, the Falklands’ government must be represented, and that there can never be any negotiations over the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands unless and until the Falkland Islanders so wish.

The Timerman incursion to London is geared to expose in Europe the 180th anniversary of the alleged ‘forcible usurpation’ of the Falklands in January 1833, according to Argentina’s interpretation of historical facts, but most important to try and water-down the significance of the Falklands referendum March 10/11 on the Islands political status and future.

The full January 31st release from Gilbert House, seat of the Falklands’ elected Legislative Assembly states the following:

“The Falkland Islands Government has been advised that the Argentine Foreign Minister will visit London next week, and has requested a meeting with the UK Foreign Secretary William Hague.

“Mr Hague has told the Government of Argentina he would be happy to meet Mr Timerman. At that meeting he would want to raise the UK Government’s serious concerns about Argentina’s policy towards the Falkland Islands.

“He has also made it clear that, for any conversation on Falkland Islands issues, the Falkland Islands Government must be represented.

“Mr Hague has also reiterated to Argentina that there can never be any negotiations over the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands unless and until the Falkland Islanders so wish. The Falkland Islands Legislative Assembly believes that the result of the forthcoming referendum will demonstrate definitively that we do not. Should the issue of sovereignty be raised at the meeting, it will not be discussed.

“Members of the Legislative Assembly made it clear in their letter of 2012 to President Fernandez de Kirchner (details of which were made public on June 15, 2012), that the Falkland Islands Government is willing to meet with the Government of Argentina in order to make our views clear, and to discuss matters of mutual interest including fisheries and communication. Therefore, MLA Dick Sawle and MLA Jan Cheek will travel to London this weekend to be available to take part in this discussion.

“We want to reassure anyone concerned by this that we are not going to be negotiating any deal with Argentina. Rather we are anticipating a full and frank exchange of views. Indeed we look forward to giving Mr Timerman some very direct messages on the unacceptability of Argentina’s actions against the Falkland Islands in recent years. We demand that our rights be respected, and that we be left in peace to choose our own future and to develop our country for our children and generations to come. It is only right that he should hear this directly from us, as well as from Mr Hague”.

Mmmmmmm,

dear old tinman has still got time to reschedule and get out of attending this meeting..

But the point is now, that I wherever, and whenever a senior argentine politician wants to talk Falklands they'll have to do it with the Falkland Islands Government.

If they refuse, then yet again it is again argentina who is refusing to talk..

It is what you call a rock and a hard place...

I also think if the meeting goes ahead - it should be televised..

Si quieren ir a hacer turísmo a Lóndres, están en todo su derecho.
Se nota que tienen plata para malgastar, ya que su presente y su futuro no depende del gobierno y Pueblo Argentino sinó del gobierno de Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)que es quien los depositó en esta parte integral de nuestro territorio conosida como Islas Malvinas Argentinas invadidas y usurpadas por Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)desde el 3 de Enero de 1833.
Es irónico como por un lado no deséan, los habitantes ilegales de nuestras Islas Malvinas, ser parte de nuestro país pero a la véz deséan ser escuchados por nuestro gobierno, cuando nuestro Pueblo no tiene cuestiones pendientes que tratar con uds.
Uds. son parte de una nación llamada Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña).
Los problemas que los abruman deben tratarlos con sus colonizadores y nó con nosotros.
Nuestro ministro de Relaciones Exteriores viaja a Lóndres a tratar cuestiones bilaterales en torno a la restitución de la soberanía sobre nuestras Islas Malvinas. Si el ministro de Pirata(Británico)deséa pagarles el pasaje a dos de los habitantes ilegales de nuestras Islas Malvinas para estar presentes en la reunión, a nosotros no nos interesa.
Eso es algo entre Piratas(Británicos), nosotros vamos por lo nuestro.
Les deséo a Dick Van Dyke y a Cheek Corea un ¡Buen viaje!

Muy interesante discurso, pero irrelevante.
Nuestro ministro de relaciones tiene el mandato del gobierno Nacional de mi país la República Argentina de entablar negociaciones con Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)tal como lo sugiera la resolución 2065 de la ONU.
La cuestión más importante para el Pueblo Argentino en toda reunión con el gobierno de Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)es la restitución de la soberanía sobre el Archipiélago de Nuestras Islas Malvinas Argentinas.
El deséo de uds. los habitantes ilegales será atendido por el gobierno de Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)y nó por el nuestro por nó ser uds. ciudadanos Argentínos.
Si deséan ser escuchados y que sus problemas se los resuelva el gobierno Argentino primero tienen que ser ciudadanos Argentinos.
Como nó lo deséan podrán viajar todas las véces que quieran a hacer turísmo a Lóndres con la plata de los contribuyentes de Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)pero hablar con nuestro gobierno, nó.
Uds. son cuidadanos de un país extranjero y nó corresponde, nó es ético el inmiscuírnos en cuestiónes de otros países.

I guess like all bullies, when a confrontation is on the horizon - they run..

Telling Falkland Islanders directly to their face that they are not entitled to SELF DETERMINATION, is quite different to saying whilst hiding in the casa rosada or similar...

Olenka, Jorge wherever you are, you can now see what sort of people the south American continent have to put up with..

Why does argentina with timmerman, kirchner and company, always have to appear and act the fools..

Is it a national characteristic, or has it taken years of serious training to achieve such a level..?
