I spoke to the new Argentine Foreign Minister, Jorge Faurie, on 3 July. During our phonecall I welcomed positive progress in UK-Argentina relations since President Macri's election and underlined the importance the UK attaches to honouring all of the commitments made in the UK-Argentina Joint Communique agreed in September.

I last met the former Argentine Deputy Foreign Minister, Pedro Villagra Delgado, in London in December to discuss the humanitarian project to identify the remains of fallen Argentine soldiers in Darwin Cemetary in the Falkand Islands.
