Argentina threatens legal action over Falklands oil..uh huh..its always about the oil
Argentina says it will take legal action against companies involved in oil exploration in the Falkland Islands, which it claims.
Foreign minister Hector Timmerman said oil development in Falklands waters was “illegal”.
He warned that any companies providing support to British prospectors could also face sanctions.
In response, the UK government said it supported the right of the islanders to develop their oil resources.
The announcement of legal action is the latest in a series of measures Argentina has taken in recent months to assert its claim to sovereignty over the Falklands, which it calls the Malvinas.
Mr Timmerman said companies involved in oil exploration in Falklands waters were “violating UN resolutions” calling for talks on sovereignty.
“The oil and gas of the South Atlantic are property of the Argentine people,” he said.
He warned that legal action would target oil companies as well as firms providing them with financial and logistic support.
it is always about the oil..never forget that..you will decode many events using this logic..
