Argentina echoes claim to Falkland Islands

President Cristina Kirchner compares claim to islands with Palestinian desire for statehood.

    Argentina's president has reiterated her country's historical claim to the Falkland Islands, three decades since the war with Britain over these remote islands in the South Atlantic.

    Cristina Kirchner compared the claim to the islands with the Palestinian desire for statehood.

    While Argentina lost the war, it has never given up its sovereignty claim over what it calls the Malvinas Islands.
