6. That's exactly what it says, whether you know it - and like it - or not.

Said determination awards Argentina “sovereign rights for the purpose of exploring and exploiting natural resources,” on the continental shelf according to the 1958 UN CLCS Convention.

In other words, the 200-mile economic zone Thatcher declared for the Falklands cannot overlap Argentina's 350-mile economic zone.

This wasn't an issue in the past because the two economic zones just barely overlapped; but the new 350-mile area literally brushes up against the Falklands' western shores.

I agree with you on this much: it's not likely to be of much consequence going forward, given the British Empire's infamous history of flouting international laws (which they consider themselves above).
