Venezuela expressed its solidarity with the Argentine people, for their claim to the Malvinas Islands, on the 40th anniversary of the military confrontation between Argentina and the United Kingdom for control of the South Atlantic archipelago.
“Commemorating 40 years of the Malvinas War, Venezuela reaffirms, together with the member countries of CELAC, its solidarity with the people and Government of Argentina in its just territorial claim over the Malvinas Islands, a legacy of European colonialism in our continent” Foreign Minister Felix Plasencia wrote on Twitter.
On Saturday, Argentine President Alberto Fernández led an official act at the Malvinas Museum to commemorate Veteran’s Day and the Day of the Fallen in the 1982 conflict between Argentina and the United Kingdom.
In the activity, he insisted on the claim of sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands, commemorating the 40th anniversary of the start of the war with the United Kingdom over the South Atlantic archipelago, and asked London to resume dialogue and abandon its military presence in the islands.
Fernández asked the United Kingdom to comply with United Nations resolutions, and demanded a “negotiated and peaceful solution.”
