Cameron on sovereignty of Falkland Islands

Prime Minister David Cameron has made his opinions on the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands clear.

Speaking in the House of Commons on Wednesday 15th June he said: "As long as the Falkland Islands want to be sovereign British territory, they should remain sovereign British territory - full stop, end of story."

The Falklands are at the centre of a territorial dispute dating back to the 19th Century.

The Argentinian president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, has called Britain "arrogant" for refusing to negotiate on the islands.
