Today, Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie met with the United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres. He was joined by the Interim Speaker of the Senate, Federico Pinedo, the president of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Deputies, Cornelia Schmidt-Liermann, and that of the Senate, Julio Cobos, as well as Congressman Daniel Filmus, the Argentine Representative to the UN, Martín García Moritán, and the Undersecretary for the Malvinas, Mateo Estremé.

The meeting with António Guterres had the purpose of requesting that he exercise his "Good Offices" role under Resolution 37/9 (1982) to bring both parties together in dialogue with a view to settling the sovereignty dispute between Argentina and the United Kingdom over the Malvinas, South Georgia, and South Sandwich Islands and the surrounding maritime areas.

It was a great opportunity to ratify Argentina's willingness to settle the pending sovereignty dispute through negotiation and dialogue with constructive proposals to facilitate the solution of this long-standing dispute between the two countries.
