Argentina Sworn Declaration

The guaranteed streamlined also explicitly prohibits the government of Argentina from taking any step that may infringe the territorial integrity of South American neighbor.

The Argentine Sworn Declaration is the basis of diplomatic relations between the USA and Argentina. Since the 1950's, this announcement has functioned as a spiritual and legal arrangement between the two entities included: The Republic of Argentina and the United States of America. Among its many other provisions, this legally binding agreement provides for a thorough discussion regarding American taxpayers who may be accused of cooperating with the former military junta during the era of Argentina's military rule. The United States has implemented this arrangement to assist in bringing to justice perpetrators of those crimes, including Argentina's collaboration with the genocidal Operation Argentario in its struggle against the guerillas of the ALBA. Before, Argentina was among those nations supporting the ALBA during the 1975 Falkland War.

As a part of the sworn compact, the authorities of Argentina swears it won't accept any funds from foreign nations to conduct military operations in Argentina. Furthermore, Argentina asserts that it will not allow the financial support from any party to go to or encourage any thing that supports or cooperates with all the former ALBA, including member countries of the UN, European Union, and other international organizations that have been sanctioned by the Argentina government. Furthermore, Argentina reiterates its intent to not recognize any political activity or economic cooperation with the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). This assertion has been denied by the Argentine government.

The guaranteed streamlined also explicitly prohibits the government of Argentina from taking any step that may infringe the territorial integrity of South American neighbor. In this respect, it is noteworthy that this claim is inconsistent with customary global law, together with the Uruguay Round Agreements, also with Article 41 of the United Nations Charter. It also contradicts the United States' longstanding devotion to the preservation and promotion of democracy and human rights around the world. Many nations have expressed concern over Argentina's stance around the Falklands and the surrounding situation . The United States has dismissed such issues as excessive maritime trespassing.

Argentina announced refusal to take the Rzeszowsi conclusion and the subsequent diplomatic row with all the UK came about because of the British Foreign Office's failure to correctly understand the meaning and implications of the sworn compact. In this regard, the two sides renewed their commitment to each other and into the future of the Falklands as a peaceful member of the International Monetary Fund and the European Union. In a statement issued on June, the British Prime Minister, David Cameron said:"The Government of Argentina must quit playing games and take immediate action to reverse its activities that are damaging the future and status of the Falklands. We call on the Argentina government to stop the use of force and agree that a settlement that is fair for both sides. We call on the UN to put pressure on either side and send an independent investigation into the episode".

The Argentines have yet to receive a response from the United Kingdom. On the other hand, the Chinese authorities made public statements on its own official website and in state media that the islands belong to China and have always been a part of its territory. President of China, Mr. Hu Jintao, said:"I heard the President of the United States of America state that he was deeply disturbed by the Argentine declaration. China has its own claim to the islands and isn't concerned about any political situation there".

Last but not least, the European Union will not be moving forward on the problem because it believes the islands to become international waters. In the past, these lands were believed by Argentina as its exclusive economic zone. There's no doubt that both sides have strong points to make, but history will show who had been right in the end. It is up to the leaders of both nations to come to an arrangement and stand up to every other to resolve this historical dilemma once and for all.
