The brave president of Argentina walked out of the summit over Falkland Islands... Some Muslim leaders should learn from her how to defend their countries and stand for their rights! Most likely there will be no more Americans summit in years to come. Latin American nations say there may not be another summit unless the US overcomes its objections to Cuba [AFP] Argentina storms out of Americas summit President Cristina Kirchner and Bolivia's Evo Morales walk out with summit already marred by US scandal and Cuba issue. Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner has stormed out of the Summit of the Americas in protest against a perceived lack of regional support for her country's claims in the dispute with the UK over the Falkland Islands. The summit in Colombia had already been marred by a lack of consensus among attendees, with Latin America countries opposing the decades-old US isolation of communist Cuba. Several countries put pressure on Barack Obama to end the ban, as the US president continued to be plagued by a US secret service scandal involving prostitutes. Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman, reporting from Cartagena, said the summit was at risk of "falling apart" after Kirchner's exit. "I suppose the collapse shouldn't be too surprising. There was complete disagreement about signing a final statement but the nail in the coffin came when Cristina Kirchner stormed out of the summit followed by Bolivia's Evo Morales. "[Kirchner] was furious, we are told, because of the lack of full, complete support for Argentina's claim of control of the Falkand Islands," Newman said. "We understand she was very, very angry that [leaders] didn't even mention the dispute over the islands with the UK." "She was overheard saying, 'This is pointless. Why did I even come here?'"

Argentina calls on firms to halt imports of UK products Argentina’s Industry Minister Debora Giorgi Wed Feb 29, 2012 9:51AM GMT Amid an ongoing dispute over the Malvinas Islands between Argentina and Britain, the Argentinean industry minister has called on the country’s top companies to stop importing British products, Press TV reports. Argentina’s Industry Minister Debora Giorgi on Tuesday called the bosses of at least 20 top firms to urge them to import goods produced elsewhere instead of Britain. The move comes in the hope that it would press Britain to negotiate over the future of the Malvinas Islands as the government of Argentine President Cristina Fernandez has recently stepped up its campaign to assert sovereignty over the islands. Argentina had also banned two British cruise ships from docking in a port in its southernmost city of Ushuia in the Tierra del Fuego province Monday morning. The Malvinas Islands, located about 300 miles off Argentina's coast and home to about 3,000 inhabitants, have been declared as part of the British Overseas Territories since Britain established its colonial rule on the islands in 1833. Argentina, however, has repeatedly dismissed the British claim over the island. Tension has been rising ahead of the 30th anniversary of the 74-day bloody war fought between Britain and Argentina in 1982 over the islands which ended with the British side claiming victory over Argentineans. A year after the war, the UK enforced the British Nationality Act of 1983, which offers citizenship to the islanders. Tensions between the two countries have also re-escalated since 2010 when London authorized oil prospecting around the islands. PressTv
I was reading this news (tension over Falkland islands) and was wondering about 'Iran-Argentina' relations. It is very confusing why the two do not have strong ties; I mean they share a lot of common interests. Especially after the 1994 bombing that was done in Argentina and the blames were directed towards Iranians, some parties (possibly Britz?) were really afraid of the two countries coming together? Argentina should have been Iran's ally just like Venezuela & Brazil. Iran should cooperate and aid Argentina in confronting British satanic aggressions. From Wikipedia: --Relations were somewhat strained between the two countries following the 1994 AMIA bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994. --Argentina's exports to Iran increased from $29 million in 2007 to $1.2 billion in 2008. Argentina is Iran's second largest trade partner in Latin America after Brazil. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Argentinian protesters burn Union flag outside UK embassy In another sign of worsening relations between Britain and Argentina, demonstrators have burnt flags outside the British Embassy in Buenos Aires. It comes after a series of sharp comments from leaders in the two countries about the future of the Falkand Islands. This year is the 30th anniversary of the conflict between the two countries. BBC ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Argentinean protesters, opposing Britain's colonial policy in the occupied Falkland islands, have burnt the flag of the United Kingdom while demonstrating outside UK embassy in Buenos Aires. The protest comes after British Prime Minister David Cameron made ridiculous remarks considering the South American nation's desire to reclaim the Falklands (known as Las Malvinas to Argentina) as “colonialism.” Protesters angered by the UK premier's remarks carried banners reading "Government break off relations now," and "English out of the Malvinas.” "It is unacceptable that they send reinforcements and that the little prince (William) should come on maneuvers," said protest leader Wilma Ripoll.
