Jan Cheek, member of the Falkland Islands legislative assembly, said the Argentine authorities were "deeply worried" about a referendum on the islands, and dismissed comments by foreign minister Hector Timerman as "desperate":
Talk of the Falklands being Argentine in 20 years makes for good headlines - but smacks of desperation.
Mr Timerman dismisses us as 'settlers'. Well, we are settlers. Like countries across the continent of the Americas, we came into existence through waves of settlement from Europe and elsewhere.
Indeed, we Falkland islanders settled in our home long before many parts of Argentina were settled by the Argentines.
We are a thriving community, with a growing international voice. We want good neighbourly relations with Argentina, we are willing to talk with them and we cannot be ignored.
