Members of the Legislative Assembly respond to the Organization of American States statement – regret but no surprise, and nothing new
The people of the Falkland Islands have a right to self-determination, enshrined in international law. We fully support the UK government™s current resolute position, which confirms that the issue of sovereignty is non-negotiable. We seek nothing more than neighbourly relations with Argentina and regret that this issue should once again be raised on the regional stage. The OAS maintains a longstanding declaration on the Falkland Islands but we note that the wording in this year™s declaration is the same as in previous years – it has not changed, and nor has anything else.
