Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned that if the British Empire decides to attack Argentina, Venezuela would come to help its sister nation, now that the territorial dispute that the South American country holds with the United Kingdom over the Falkland Islands has intensified.

The statements were triggered by the UK's decision to send a warship to the Falkland Islands, and possibly a nuclear submarine.

Chavez believes the move is ridiculous and the UK should instead leave the islands, and obey United Nations resolutions that say both countries should negotiate.

The country members of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Peoples of our America, ALBA, also support Argentina's claim on the Falklands. Ecuador's president Rafael Correa and Chavez pledged to evaluate potential sanctions on Britain if the European nation continues to refuse to talk with Argentina.

The Falkland Islands, known in Spanish as Malvinas, were the scenario for the war that 30 years ago granted the UK power over the archipelago that also includes the South Georgia and South Sandwich islands, and which is located more than 12,000 kilometres away from Britain.

Venezuela's support for Argentina comes at a time when the region appears stronger and more united than before, with a common vision against neocolonialism and imperialism.
