A Brief History Of The Anglo-Falklands Dispute
Argentina, or United Provinces of Rio De La Plata inherited Spain's rights of doctrine under Uti Possidetis Juris (a.) and The Succession Of States, so that it exercised eminent domain until 1810.
Spain, recognizing Argentina's independence, explicitly assigned these rights and agreed with the Argentinean people that they expire on May 25th, 1810.

On December 15th, 1823 the United Kingdom recognized the United Provinces as owners of The Falkland Islands by signing the Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation.

The dispute began with a disagreement between Britain and Argentina over the date of signing. The conflict then continued as a disagreement between the Argentineans and the United Provinces of Rio De La Plata over the ownership of The Falkland Islands. The outcome was that The United Provinces of Rio De La Plata were considered a provisional owner only of The Falkland Islands by Britain.
