UK rejects attempt by Argentina to gain sovereignty of Falkland Islands

The UK has rebuffed a plot by Argentina to gain sovereignty over the resources on the Falkland Islands as a way to seek sovereignty over the islands themselves. In a letter to the UN, the British government stated that Falkland Islanders must be the ones to decide on questions of sovereignty. The letter noted the 2013 referendum in which Falkland Islanders voted 99.8% to stay in the UK.
