Special Committee on Decolonisation of the United Nations

This Committee, currently comprising twenty-seven countries, annually adopts a resolution which -among other things- requests both governments to consolidate the present process of dialogue and cooperation through the resumption of negotiations, with a view to finding a peaceful solution to the controversy over sovereignty as soon as possible. The last Resolution of this type was made on 15 June 2006.

In relation to this subject, the United Nations Secretary General said, in his report of 5 April 2005 on the Second Decade for the Eradication of Colonialism that, in the case of the Malvinas Islands, there exists a sovereignty dispute and that the Special Committee on Decolonisation and the General Assembly have continued to urge the interested governments to continue negotiating in order to find a definitive solution to this question.
