Argentina declines Falklands meeting

Argentina declines Falklands meeting
The Prime Minister is “disappointed” by Argentina’s decision to withdraw from talks with the Foreign Office because of the presence of Falkland Island representatives.

Explaining the decision, Argentinian foreign minister Hector Timerman said the international community considered the dispute over the islands to be a bilateral one between Buenos Aires and London.

Downing Street said today the Government had not revoked the offer of talks, but would not leave Falklanders out of the discussions.

“[We are] Disappointed by the decision,” the Prime Minister’s spokeswoman said.

“The position is we are not prepared to talk over the heads of the Falkland islanders about matters which affect their status as a British overseas territory.”
