David Cameron: 'Falklands will choose its own future'

David Cameron has strongly rebuffed a call by Argentina's president for the UK to return the Falkland Islands.

Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner had urged UK Prime Minister David Cameron to abide by a 1965 UN resolution to "negotiate a solution" to the dispute. The call came in an open letter, published as an advert in the Guardian and Independent newspapers.

Mr Cameron said that the islands' future "should be determined by the Falkland Islanders themselves" and urged Argentina to abide by the outcome of March's referendum on its political status.
