“There is no more place for colonialism”
Cafiero asserted that the 1982 conflict “did not alter the nature of the sovereignty dispute between Argentina and the United Kingdom.” He returned to his support and maintained that this “was recognized by the General Assembly,” where he repeated that the resolutions adopted in 1965 are still in force and “requested the parties to resume sovereignty negotiations”.
The words became more concrete: “The UK conducts its conduct in relation to the South Atlantic as if the sovereignty dispute no longer existed.” In addition, he reminded those present that this British sovereignty over the Malvinas “grants fishing licenses in the areas surrounding the Malvinas Islands” and that “it persists in the exploration and exploitation of non-renewable resources that do not belong to it”.
