Only two parties to the sovereignty dispute

Within the framework of Resolution 2065 (XX) of 1965 of the General Assembly of the United Nations - which establishes that the controversy between the Argentine Republic and the United Kingdom concerning the sovereignty over the islands must be solved through negotiations which take into account the dispositions and objectives of the United Nations Charter, Resolution 1514 (XV) of the General Assembly as well as the interests of the population of the islands - a process of bilateral negotiations got under way which analysed various formulas to solve the dispute. No agreement was reached.

In 1982 the conflict of the South Atlantic took place and diplomatic relations between Argentina and the United Kingdom were broken off. These were restored in February 1990.
