Argentine President to PM David Cameron: Congrats,but can we discuss the Falklands??

Memo from Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner to new British Prime Minister David Cameron: Congrats on your appointment, now can we discuss the Falklands?

Three days after Cameron was declared the new head of British government, Argentina’s president has written him with a request for renewed talks over the disputed Falkland Islands, Argentina’s official Telam news agency reported Friday.

Kirchner’s letter expressed a “desire of the Argentine government to resume the delayed process of negotiation over the sovereignty” of the islands in accordance with U.N. resolutions, Telam said.

Kirchner also vented Argentine opposition to recent British oil drilling near the Falklands, which Argentina has always claimed to own.

Argentina “has rejected” Britain’s recent “hydrocarbon exploration activities … in a unilateral manner in the disputed area” of the islands, her letter said
