Spanish Government Will Not Support Argentine Claim
Legislative Assembly Member, the Hon. Roger Edwards, attended the Forum for Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) of the European Union in Brussels, from 23-26 March.  He reported the encouraging news that the Spanish Government issued a press release during the Forum, which warned that at the meeting between the European Union and Latin American countries (EU-LAC), to be held in Spain on 18 May, the Spanish Government would not be supporting Argentina™s sovereignty claim over the Islands, should the Argentine President ask for it.  The sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, the press release claimed, was a matter for the British and Argentine Governments to decide without interference from other countries.  The Forum brought together representatives from 27 European countries and 21 overseas territories. With Cllr Edwards were FIG™s Senior Economic and Statistical Analyst, Michael Poole and London Representative, Sukey Cameron. (Penguin News)
