Falklands referendum: An Argentine view

8 March 2013 Last updated at 06:08 GMT

This weekend, people on the Falkland Islands are preparing to vote in a referendum on whether the islands should remain an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom.

It was prompted after calls from the Argentine President, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, that the territory be "returned" to Argentina.

The Argentine government claims that the Falklands were stolen from them 180 years ago and that the Islanders are "settlers" who can have no right to claim the Islands for the British.

Twenty-six-year-old Martin de Angelis is from Buenos Aires in Argentina and is studying in the UK.

He thinks his country has the right to the islands, known to Argentines as Las Malvinas.
