BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Argentina has ruled out military action to reassert its sovereignty claims over the Falkland Islands, but insists on negotiations with Britain over oil exploration in what Argentina considers to be its territorial waters, a top diplomat said Friday.
Residents of the islands Argentina occupied for two months in 1982 don't need to worry about another war, but they should clearly understand that the South American nation won't give up its claims to the islands it calls Las Malvinas, Deputy Foreign Minister Victorio Taccetti said in an interview with FM Milenium radio.
