A cable from Buenos Aires discussing Argentinean sea borders
Key point: The oldest cable released and was already a de-classified document. Came six months after a coup in Argentina and details Argentinas plans to increase its sea jurisdictions and establish a six mile territorial sea. US diplomats are concerned about US fishing rights in Argentinian waters.
Dispatch: “FONOFF (Foreign office) legal advisor concedes distinction between exclusive and preferential fishing jurisdiction a semantic nicety. He understands that in zone of preferential jurisdiction Argentina would claim right to tax, license and otherwise control all activities related to exploitation of resources of seas. ”
