David Cameron Responds to Argentine President's Call for Falklands to be Handed Over

Says he will "do everything to protect the interests of the Falklands islanders"


Downing Street has strongly rebuffed a call by Argentina's president for the UK to return the Falkland Islands.

Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner had urged UK Prime Minister David Cameron to abide by a 1965 UN resolution to "negotiate a solution" to the dispute.

But a spokesman for Mr Cameron said the people of the Falklands had shown "a clear desire to remain British" and their interests would be protected.
