South American press comment on Prince Charles's state visit to Argentina
Friday 12 March 1999
IN THE Falklands many people had an "I told you so" attitude when they heard of Prince Charles's comments about their islands and they were relieved that the press reports coming from Argentina weren't true. It reaffirmed their faith in the system. The pressure from both the Argentine and the British press over so-called talks and requests for special favours and proposed visits had begun to wear people down in the past few weeks, so his remarks about an understanding between us and Argentina were most welcome.

THE PRINCE had a king of spades up his sleeve. Lacking an ace to trump the power of President Menem, the key sentence in the Prince's speech was a thrust in the diplomatic fencing over the Malvinas. His argument was surprising and worrying for the future. With all delicacy and formality of style, but firmly, he issued an invitation to "live harmoniously alongside a little democracy a few kilometres from Argentine democracy". These strong words produced an immediate sensation of discomfort among the ministers of the government, despite their efforts to conceal it. No one knew in advance what he was going to say, and no one expected it. The implications of those words fell on the Argentine government like a bucket of cold water.
