Referendum for Falklands

City A.M. Reporter
THE GOVERNMENT of the Falklands said yesterday it will hold a referendum next year to “eliminate any possible doubt” about the islanders’ wishes to remain British in the face of Argentina’s sovereignty claims.

“Britain will respect and defend their choice,” said Prime Minister David Cameron in a statement.

Britain and Argentina in 1982 went to war over the South Atlantic islands, and 30 years later tensions have escalated between the two nations.
