(MENAFN - Arab News) The Saudi Support Group of the Argentinean Rights over the Malvinas Island, also known as the Falkland Islands, gathered here recently to reaffirm and support resumption of bilateral negotiations between Argentina and the United Kingdom in accordance with the United Nations resolutions.
The Argentine Embassy hosted a reception at the residence of the ambassador in the Diplomatic Quarter to discuss the sovereignty of Argentina on the Malvinas Island.
The reception was attended by a number of senior Saudi officials, diplomats and members of the Saudi Support Group on the Malvinas Island.
Commenting on the document "The Question of the Malvinas Island," Jaime Sergio Cerda, ambassador of the Argentine Republic said,
"It is an opportunity to inform people about the developments in recent months that may illustrate the claim of Argentina in its sovereign rights." He said that several international and regional bodies such as the Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR), the community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) had declared solidarity with Argentina.
Cerda said, "It is important to highlight that the UN's special committee against decolonization adopted on June 2013 a new resolution requesting a peaceful end to the existing colonialism between Argentina and the United Kingdom."
He mentioned that this academic session is an opportunity to discuss issues that have developed by the unilateral action of the UK in the occupied territories of the Malvinas Islands, the British military presence in the South Atlantic, and the illegitimate appropriation of renewable and non-renewable natural resources.
Dr. Haitham Bouzo, president of the Saudi Support Group on the Malvinas Island said,
"The Saudi Support Group will continue their efforts for the sovereignty of the Malvinas Island. We want to create peace and harmony around the world."
He added, "Our aim is to help people and provide them with the chance to live life their way. We are trying to enlarge the composition of this group and arrange meetings for all support groups concerning this matter."
The Malvinas Island was discovered in 1520 by members of Magellan's expedition but controversy exists over the island's original discovery and subsequent colonization by Europeans.
