BUENOS AIRES, April 3 (UPI) -- Argentina again staked its claim to the Falkland Islands Wednesday, saying it would not abandon hope of regaining them from Britain, federal officials said.
President Cristina Kirchner said during a Veterans Day and Victims of the South Atlantic War remembrance that the efforts of those Argentine troops who lost their lives in the short-lived war with Britain over the islands must not be forgotten, La Nacion reported online.
Argentina's former dictatorship launched an unsuccessful attack on the islands in 1982, a 73-day war that left 650 Argentines and 250 British dead.
