Welcoming the Falkland Islands Government’s announcement that it will hold a referendum on its political status, Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
The British Government has been consistent in its view that the future of the Falklands can only be determined by the people who live there. So the Prime Minister and I support this initiative to demonstrate – without doubt – the definitive view of the Falkland Islands people. In a region that rightly prizes democracy and human rights, it is entirely appropriate that the Islanders can express this fundamental right...
I hope very much that Argentina, and indeed the whole of the international community, joins the UK in listening carefully to what they have to say.
