    The June Debate I: The Falklands, The UK And Argentina: 'Time To Reflect On How We Can All Work Together In Our Common Interest'?'
    Dr John Hughes, former UK Ambassador to Argentina, Donald Lamont, former Governor of the Falkland Islands and Madeleine Moon MP spoke in our first June debate.


    From l to r: Madeleine Moon MP, Lord Lothian (in the chair), Dr John Hughes and Donald Lamont
    All the panellists emphasised the importance of building confidence in the dispute between the UK, Argentina and the Falkland Islands. Donald Lamont spoke of the need to develop cooperation and build confidence in relation to the islands, and Dr John Hughes agreed that confidence between the parties was essential and that meant some practical cooperation without which there would be 'no possibility of moving forward'. He said that many means had been tried to solve the dispute - legal, commercial, diplomatic and military - but none had worked. However, he pointed to seemingly intractable disputes which had made progress - in South Africa and Northern Ireland, for example. He said that re-establishing cooperation and defining common interests should be a priority and there might be a role for non-state actors, but he felt that with the next Argentinian Presidential election in 2015, it was highly unlikely that there would be any great change between now and then. Madeleine Moon MP spoke of the potential of the Falkland Islands which was ‘there for all to see’, but said that none of this was sustainable until the Islanders knew that their right to self determination was secure.

    Dr Hughes was critical of what he described as ‘sham negotiations’, with Argentina’s desire for negotiations with a pre-determined outcome - the transfer of sovereignty. He said that any route to successful resolution would require firstly inclusive discussion: the bringing in of all the parties required to obtain a successful settlement of the dispute. For Argentina, this would mean a ‘complete change of policy’, as they would have to recognise that there were three parties to the dispute and could no longer claim that it was a colonial dispute; and secondly, that nothing be ruled out.

    Madeleine Moon spoke of her recent visit to the Falklands Islands as a member of the Defence Select Committee, against ‘a backdrop of tension’. She underlined the importance of ensuring a ‘viable and secure future’ for the Falklanders, which was ‘in all our common interest’. She said that there was only one meaning of self-determination - de facto, it could not be determined by someone else and she questioned who President Kirchner’s recent rhetoric had been aimed at. She pointed to the fact that the Falkland Islands’ GDP was £5 million in 1980 compared to £100 million today, and said that the Falklands’ further potential for growth was causing tension, given their prime position to exploit resources offshore.
    Donald Lamont spoke of the need for mutual respect, good will, a spirit of reconciliation and pragmatism. He expressed sadness that the progress in the 1990s, which had led to agreements on hydrocarbons and fisheries, had not only not been built on, but had been ‘dismantled piece by piece’, but said that now it was for others to determine the way forward.

    Despite current discussions on peacefull ways forward, both sides have been gathering intel and preparing for what will be a definitive end to this dispute over ownership of the Malvinas.

    NOT TO BE MISSED! There is only one place you need to be this weekend and its where the best gaming and craice will be. Predtor CG. You know you want to!
