At the beginning of his official visit to New York, which included his participation in the United Nations Special Committee on Decolonization Session for the Malvinas Question, Foreign Minister Solá met with the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, and asked him to talk to the United Kingdom for it to agree to resume negotiations regarding the sovereignty of the Islands.

During the meeting, Solá also conveyed to Guterres the Argentine Government’s commitment to solidary multilateralism within the critical context of COVID-19 and reiterated support for the waiver of patents and medical supplies that are fundamental to fight the pandemic.

The Foreign Minister renewed Argentina’s firm support for the good offices mission assigned by the General Assembly to the Secretary-General, which aims at a resumption of sovereignty negotiations regarding the Malvinas Question between Argentina and the United Kingdom, in line with the guidelines established and reiterated in several resolutions by the Assembly and its Special Committee on Decolonization.

Solá and Guterres discussed the preparatory process for the Food Systems Summit and the Member State Summit Dialogues for Argentina, held last May, which gathered a large number of representatives and entities of the public and private sectors that represent a fundamental contribution of our country to the international community’s debate on “Enhancing Food Systems for Sustainable Development.”

They also considered the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which Argentina is fully committed to implement in order to meet the economic, social and environmental goals for the next years, and which Argentina considers to be one of UN’s most ambitious projects on development.

During the meeting, Solá was joined by the Chief of Staff to the Minister, Guillermo Justo Chaves, the Secretary for the Malvinas Islands, Antarctica and the South Atlantic, Daniel Filmus, and the ambassador to the United Nations, María del Carmen Squeff.
