Sean Penn urges negotiations between UK and Argentina

Hollywood actor Sean Penn has shown his support for Argentina as tensions rise between the UK and Argentina ahead of the 30th anniversary of the Falklands war.

After meeting Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in Buenos Aires, he urged the UK to join talks on the dispute.

"I think that the world today is not going to tolerate any kind of ludicrous and archaic commitment to colonialist ideology," the Oscar-winning actor said.
