Argentina's foreign minister Hector Timerman said the South American country considers inhabitants of the Falkland Islands as its own citizens.
"There are very few inhabitants of the Islas Malvinas who were born in the Islas Malvinas. But for us, they are Argentinian citizens," he said.
"Argentina is looking for a dialogue to pacifically resolve a dispute over sovereignty," added Timerman.
