[...] A dispute exists between the Governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland concerning sovereignty over the Falkland Islands (Malvinas). [...] the Argentine Government objects and rejects the extension, by the UK Government, of the application of the Convention to the Falkland Islands (Malvinas).

Objection United Kingdom, 02-10-2015

The Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland would like to reiterate that it has no doubt about its sovereignty over the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands and the surrounding maritime areas. It is therefore entirely legitimate for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to extend the application of equivalent arrangements to the above-mentioned international instruments for pleasure yachts carrying 12 and 36 passengers, to the Falkland Islands and the surrounding maritime areas.
