Foradori-Duncan Pact: Ministry of Foreign Affairs backs down on everything | The national government cancels the benefits provided to the UK in Malvinas

No flights to Falkland Islands, sanctions were imposed on oil companies operating in the South Atlantic zone, all cooperation in the fisheries sector was canceled. These are some of the actions taken by the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs since 2019 to make the agreements they signed in vain Alan DuncanBritish foreign secretary, and — drunk or unconscious — Argentina’s deputy foreign minister Carlos Foradori. Meanwhile, former Foreign Minister Makrismo, George Faurie, went to court to defend Foradori, but maintained that what Duncan wrote in his memoirs was “disrespectful, it’s ridiculous.” He did not launch to deny negotiations at the British Embassy instead of the Foreign Office, nor did he deny that the talks took place in the basement of the diplomatic delegation. After all, when the pro-British communique was signed, Faurie was still ambassador to France, so he was a witness to rumors.


as a continuation page 12, the Foradori-Duncan agreement, regarding flights, does not apply. From the start, there was a reaction from the Front United Aeronautical Unions who denounced that the pact was surrender of sovereignty. Even so, the first Latam flight from San Pablo to Malvinas had finished and the statement said they were only allowed to stop in Córdoba once a week.

The government of Frente de Todos (FdT), for two years now, with Felipe Solá at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Daniel Filmus at the Malvinas Secretariat, began to put a stop to everything by demanding that the daily route pass through Argentine territory, either via Buenos Aires, Comodoro Rivadavia or Ushuaia, and in all cases it is operated by Aerolineas Argentinas. The British Foreign Office — under pressure from the islanders — flatly refused, so no flight. In his diary, Duncan admits that for Malvinas the need for a connection with the Argentine mainland was critical, because otherwise, “there are no opportunities for effective development.”

Crude oil

The Foradori-Duncan Agreement explicitly benefits Britain in terms of lifting restrictions on activities in the South Atlantic. It specifically stated: “It was agreed to adopt appropriate measures to remove all barriers that limit the economic growth and sustainable development of the Malvinas Islands, including trade, fisheries, navigation and hydrocarbons.”

The government of Alberto Fernández launched administrative sanctions against companies Chrysaor Holdings and Harbor Energy, of the UK, and Navitas Petroleum, which is based in Israel. Harbor, who joined Chrysaor, gave up on their plan and Navitas continued. On April 21, the sanctions were published in the State Gazette.

Fish catching

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stopped the meeting to exchange information on fishery resources considering that UK continues with unilateral fishing license renewal in conflicted waters.

The same applies to the question of Antarctic scientific cooperation. In addition, London registered the polar scientific vessel Attenborough under the flag of the Malvinas Islands, i.e. registered under the illegitimate government framework, not recognized by Argentina. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs can take steps to revoke the validity of the Scientific Cooperation Memorandum and have denounced all those in their respective international organizations.


Former Chancellor Faurie sent Duncan on astonishing side: “He’s not Men, it was not a gentleman to treat someone with whom he was negotiating like this. A well-known diplomat like Foradori did not deserve to be treated in such a contemptuous drunken manner. In our terms, it is guachada. The English themselves will not allow him to enter any English club because among the gentlemen it is not done.

In fact, in the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs they have opened a summary where the problem of drunkenness is not at the center, but rather the fact that it is negotiated at the embassy and not at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in the context of a completely inadequate dinner in the cellar. There were witnesses that similar scenes were repeated with other diplomats and journalists. In fact, Faurie did not at all question the conclusion of the Foradori-Duncan agreement, which was a macrosmo policy, what he questioned was that Duncan had revealed behind the scenes the venue and tone of the negotiations. It is not polite.
