Spain denies united action with Argentina against the UK

SPAIN’S foreign minister has denied Argentinean claims that an agreement has been reached between the two countries over action against the UK.

It follows a meeting between Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo and his Argentine counterpart Héctor Timerman at the UN General Assembly in New York.

The pair are understood to have discussed both Gibraltar and the Falklands, although Margallo described the supposed agreement as ‘a bad interpretation’ of what was discussed.

Instead Margallo insisted that Spain will support Argentina over the Falklands, while hoping that the favour will be returned during the discussion over Gibraltar.

Margallo recently stated that ‘the similarities (between Gibraltar and the Falklands) are enormous’ and insisted both were in need of ‘decolonisation’.

In a continuing series of high level meetings between Gibraltar and the UK, British Defence Minister Philip Hammond MP has met with the Rock’s Chief Minister Fabian Picardo.

The exact reasons for the meeting were not released to the press.

  1. No surprise there, as Argentina IS SPAIN. Written history began with the arrival of Spanish chroniclers in the expedition of Juan Díaz de Solís in 1516 to the Río de la Plata, which marks the beginning of Spanish domination in this region, with the blessing of the Pope and the Jesuits to enforce this occupation on the indigenous people of the region.
    Spain and Argentina should leave the people of Gibralter and Falklands alone, as they have no rights to Argentina, nor rights to Gibralter as Spain signed article X of the Treaty of Utrecht. Spain has lands in Morocco, but does not want to give them back to the Moroccans, talk about the pot calling the kettle black here.
    Regarding the Falkland Islands, at no time in recorded history did the indigenous population of Argentina ever live on the Falklands, never mind the all conquering Spanish. The French arrived first then the British. Britain has invested heavily in the Flaklands and has a populace that wants to remain part of Britain. So piss of Spain and Gibralter, piss off.
