Buenos Aires, June 28 (RHC)-- The President of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, held a meeting on Monday with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, to whom he conveyed Argentina's commitment to resume dialogue and negotiations on sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands.

The meeting, which took place at the headquarters of the Group of Seven (G-7) Summit, the Argentinean president also stressed Argentina's commitment "for peace, the end of colonialism and the validity of international law," as stated in the note from the Foreign Ministry.

President Alberto Fernandez conveyed to Boris Johnson "the importance of the reestablishment of regular flights by the flag carrier between the islands and the Argentinean mainland, as it is essential to consolidate confidence in the bilateral relationship between the two countries." 

Likewise, both politicians discussed the situation in Ukraine, and the importance of strengthening global mechanisms to counteract the consequences of the conflict between this country and Russia.

According to local platforms, President Alberto Fernández, in response to the comment made by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom regarding the potential for investment in Argentinean territory, expressed that negotiations on the sovereignty of the Malvinas Islands must be reopened first.

Alberto Fernandez recalled that a war was carried out in 1982 by a civilian-military dictatorship and noted that every year the Decolonization Committee of the United Nations votes a resolution to open negotiations between the parties on the Malvinas issue.
