“What the Russians have done is prospecting tasks that have not involved drilling, with electromagnetic technology that allows them to identify hydrocarbon bodies. But to confirm the size of the reserves, exploration should be done with drilling and The Argentine Government should already be warning that the Argentine oil that has been discovered cannot be exploited and warn those powers that environmental impact explorations cannot be carried out there because it would be breaking the Madrid Protocol“Carmona warned.

The former national official recognized that the Government of Javier Milei should have had official information about Russia’s exploratory tasks in the Argentine Antarctic territory, and if not, the Foreign Ministry has every right to demand that information..

“All the research and scientific activities that we carried out in the Antarctic sector with the Argentine Antarctic Institute were reported to the Secretariat of the Antarctic Treaty, which also is based in Buenos Aires and it is a few steps from the Argentine Foreign Ministry. You just have to cross the Plaza San Martín“he said with an ironic tone.
