The Argentine Government declares that the extension of the[...] Convention on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil or Commercial Matters (18-03-1970), made by the United Kingdom of the Islas Malvinas, Georgias del Sur and Sandwich del Sur, identified by Great Britain as Falkland Islands and its Dependencies, does not affect the Rights of the Argentine Republic on the mentioned archipelago.

The illicitness of the action of the United Kingdom (occupation by force of the Islands in 1833 and expulsion of the local inhabitants) has been constantly pointed out by the Republic of Argentina. Likewise, the U.N. in its G.A. resolutions 2065(XX), 3160(XXVIII) and 31/49 has urged both Governments to accelerate the negotiations on the existing sovereignty dispute, so as to put an end to the present colonial situation.

Objection United Kingdom, 06-01-1981
The Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland have no doubt as to United Kingdom sovereignty over the Falkland Islands and their Dependencies. The United Kingdom is fully entitled to include them within the scope of application of international agreements to which it is a party. The United Kingdom therefore cannot accept the Argentine declaration referred to above in so far as it purports to question the right of the United Kingdom to extend the said Conventions to the Falkland Islands and their Dependencies nor can it accept that the Government of the Argentine Republic has any right in this regard.

The United Kingdom further does not accept the implied assertion in the last paragraph of the Argentine declaration that the United Nations has pointed out the "illicitness of the action of the United Kingdom (occupation by force of the Islands in 1833 and expulsion of the local inhabitants)". United Nations resolutions have simply called for the settlement of the dispute by negotiation between the two Governments.

08-05-1987
The Argentine Republic totally excludes the application of the provisions of paragraph 2 of Article 4, as well as those of Chapter II.

The Argentine Republic will not execute Letters of Request issued for the purpose of obtaining pre-trial discovery of documents as known in the Common Law Countries.
The Argentine Republic rejects the extension of the application of the Convention regarding the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Commercial or Civil Matters adopted in The Hague on 18 March 1970, to the Malvinas Islands, South Georgias and the South Sandwich Islands as was notified by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands on 23 November 1979, and reaffirms its sovereign rights over the Malvinas Islands, South Georgias and the South Sandwich Islands, which form an integral part of its national territory.

The General Assembly of the United Nations has adopted resolutions 2065 (XX), 3160 (XXVIII), 31/49, 37/9, 38/12, 39/6, 40/21 and 41/40 in which is recognised that there exists a dispute over the sovereignty concerning the question of the Malvinas Islands and in which the Argentine Republic and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland are urged to continue negotiating in order to find, as soon as possible, a peaceful and definitive solution to the dispute, through the good offices of the Secretary General of the United Nations who shall inform the General Assembly about the progress achieved.
Furthermore the Argentine Republic rejects the acceptance declared by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on 19 June 1986, on behalf of the Malvinas Islands, South Georgias and the South Sandwich Islands, regarding the accession by the Principality of Monaco to the aforementioned Convention.

Objection United Kingdom, 18-08-1987
The Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has no doubt as to the United Kingdom's sovereignty over the Falkland Islands or South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands and is fully entitled to include those territories within the scope of application of international agreements to which it is a party. The United Kingdom therefore cannot accept the Argentine declaration in so far as it purports to question the right of the United Kingdom to extend the Convention to the Falkland Islands or South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands; nor can it accept that the Government of the Argentine Republic has any right in this regard.

The above applies equally to the rejection by the Government of the Argentine Republic in the said declaration of the acceptance by the United Kingdom in respect of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands of the accession of Monaco to the Convention.

11-04-1988
With respect to the acceptance by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland of the adhesion of the Argentine Republic to the Hague Convention on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil or Commercial Matters, declared by Note dated February 12, 1988, the Argentine Government rejects the pretended acceptance of said Convention formulated for the Malvinas Islands, South Georgias Islands and South Sandwich Islands and reaffirms the sovereignty of the Argentine Republic over said Islands, that are an integral part of the national territory.

Objection United Kingdom, 08-07-1988
