Falkland Islands: Argentine foreign minister quotes Churchill over Jeremy Brown invite

In the invitation to Buenos Aires on Friday, Hector Timerman, Argentina’s foreign minister, said: “As Winston Churchill would say: ‘You need courage to sit down and listen’.”

“The UK has a long-standing interest in building a stronger partnership with Argentina on a broad range of issues of mutual interest.

“The only issue that we will not discuss is the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, unless and until the islanders wish us to do so.

“We will issue a formal response in due course.”

On Thursday, Mr Browne criticised Argentina’s “domineering behaviour” over President Cristina Kirchner’s plan to address a UN “decolonisation committee” in New York next week.

She will be the first head of state ever to address the gathering.

Mrs Kirchner has tried to maximise economic pressure on the Falklands by preventing any cruise ships which stop at the islands from using Argentina’s ports. She has also begun legal action against companies exploring for oil in the waters around the British territory.

Mr Browne accused Argentina, with a population of 40 million, of trying to “impoverish an isolated community of about 3,000 people”. He asked: “Which party is behaving in a domineering way?”
