David Cameron has rebuffed a renewed demand by Argentina to hand back
the Falklands, insisting the islands’ residents had his “100 per cent
backing” in their determination to remain British.
He hit back after the Argentinian president, Cristina Fernandez de
Kirchner, denounced British “colonialism” and said the United Kingdom
should start talks on the Falklands’ sovereignty.
Mr Cameron retorted that she should listen to the result of a referendum to be held on the islands this year.
said: “The future of the Falkland Islands should be determined by the
Falkland Islanders themselves, the people who live there.
“Whenever they have been asked their opinion, they say they want to maintain their current status with the United Kingdom.”
