Argentina Complains Brazilian TV Calls Malvinas Falklands

Brazil’s main television station international signal, TV Globo refers to the Malvinas Islands as "Falklands", complained the Argentine agency DYN.

The controversy is over a special program on the Falklands’ wildlife, which the Brazilian TV Globo station is promoting including in Argentina.

The program is a chapter of the "Globo Reporter" and refers to wildlife in the Falkland Islands, "also known as Malvinas".

DYN points out that the TV Globo promotion comes as a surprise since the administration of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has always supported Argentina’s sovereignty claim over the Malvinas, "which were illegally taken over by the British in 1833".

In 1982, Argentina and the United Kingdom went to war over the Falkland Islands, after the Argentine military occupied the British dependency of South Georgia on March 19, 1982.

Argentina ended up surrendering on June 14, 1982. It was a bloody war with almost 1,000 dead: 649 Argentine soldiers and 258 British.  Although England won the war Argentina shows no sign of relinquishing its claim to the islands.
