Islands’ referendum poses long-term difficulties for Falklands/Malvinas solution
A resounding victory in the Falklands Islands’ (Islas Malvinas) referendum has done nothing to resolve the long-term future of the South Atlantic islands. The UK is left paying a large annual defence bill for an island of less than 3,000 inhabitants while Argentina claims its rights over the territory – and the potential gas and oil in the nearby seas.
THERE was no surprise that inhabitants of the Malvinas/Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic voted on March 10 and 11, 2013, to remain a British overseas territory.
There was little surprise either in the reaction of Argentine President Cristina Kirchner, who dismissed the island referendum as a ‘parody’.
