 Argentina 719

     The stamp, issued to acknowledge the national census of 1960, shows the territory claimed by Argentina. The Falkland Islands are claimed by both Argentina and Great Britain. The Antarctic Environmental Protocol signed by 27 countries including Argentina, defers the question of claims to Antarctic territory made by some, but not recognized by others.
     The Argentine Antarctic claim, consisting of the Antarctic Peninsula and a triangular section extending to the South Pole between the meridians 25 West and 74 West and the parallel 60 South latitude is overlapped by claim asserted by Chile (53W to 90W) and Great Britain (20W to 80W).
