Falkland Islands

Volume 488: debated on Friday 6 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has had discussions with his Argentinean counterpart on the Falkland Islands in the last 10 years. (259928)

Foreign and Commonwealth Office Ministers have met their Argentinean counterparts on numerous occasions over the last 10 years to discuss a variety of different subjects. None of these meetings have been specifically about the Falkland Islands. We have made it clear to the Argentinians that there can be no negotiations on the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands unless and until such time as the Falkland Islanders so wish. The UK has no doubt about its sovereignty over the Falkland Islands.
