Gib tug-of-war: Spain and Argentina unite to reclaim the Rock and the Falklands from the UK
12 August 2013 @ 18:55

SPAIN'S foreign affairs minister is hoping to team up with his Argentine counterpart and launch a double territory dispute against the UK with the help of the United Nations to win back both Gibraltar – which has been British for over 300 years – and the Falkland Islands, known to Argentina as Las Malvinas.

José Manuel García-Margallo is due to fly out to the South American country next month to discuss the legal wrangling between the two nations over the expropriation of Repsol shares in the petroleum plant, YPF, and he claims that he and Argentine foreign minister Héctor Timerman 'will analyse the possibility' of the two countries approaching the UN jointly over the Rock and the Falklands.
