UK, Argentina Governments to Remove Restrictive Oil, Gas Industry Measures
The British Government and the Government of Argentina have agreed to work towards removing restrictive measures around the South Atlantic and Falkland Islands oil and gas industries.

The British Government and the Government of Argentina have agreed to work towards removing restrictive measures around the South Atlantic and Falkland Islands oil and gas industries.

This agreement follows a series of high level meetings in Buenos Aires featuring Sir Alan Duncan, the first foreign office minister to visit Argentina since 2009. During the visit Sir Alan met President Mauricio Macri, Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra and Deputy Foreign Minister Carlos Foradori, as well as Senator Federico Pinedo, Cabinet Minister Marcos Pena and Strategic Affairs Secretary Fulvio Pompeo.

“The UK and Argentina are building a positive relationship based on areas where we so clearly agree,” said UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Minister Alan Duncan.

“The South Atlantic dialogue will seek to build cooperation in areas of mutual interest. Of course this will not include the issue of sovereignty. The UK continues to strongly support the rights of the Falkland Islanders and our position on sovereignty has not changed - there can be no dialogue on this unless the Falkland Islanders so wish,” he added.

“It’s clear to me that Argentina is open for business. The measures agreed today demonstrate we can make progress through dialogue,” Duncan continued.
