A month after meeting Javier Mili, the British Foreign Secretary will visit the Malvinas Islands to reiterate his commitment to defending the right to self-determination.

British Foreign Secretary, David Cameron, Will visit the Falkland Islands During the first leg of the trip to the South Atlantic, South America and New York, he will reiterate his country's commitment to protecting the right of self-determination of the archipelago's inhabitants. The announcement came a month after he met with Javier Milei in the framework of the Davos Forum.

As announced Foreign Office In a statement released this Sunday (local time), the British diplomatic chief will meet with Falkland government leaders and see communities that are part of the British family when he visits Stanley and other places on the archipelago under sovereignty. Argentina says British.

Although the foreign affairs ministry did not specify a date for the trip, some local media said the president could visit next week.

During his visit, the conservative politician will observe the work islanders are doing to protect their natural environment and see some of the millions of penguins that live in the archipelago.

Further, the Minister mentions in the note “It will reaffirm this country's commitment to protecting the islanders' right to self-determination.”

“The Falkland Islands are a valued part of the British family and we are clear that as long as they want to remain part of the family, the issue of sovereignty will not be discussed,” Cameron said in the memo.

Argentina and the United Kingdom maintain a conflict over the sovereignty of the Malvinas, and the two countries went to war in 1982 after an Argentine military junta invaded them on April 2 of that year.

In a referendum held in 2013, the Falklands voted in favor of British sovereignty.

The statement said the Foreign Secretary would pay tribute to all Britons who served on his trip and those who died in the conflict, and thank British military personnel operating in Bogland today.

He is then expected to travel to Paraguay, where he will be the UK's first foreign secretary, and to Brazil for the G20 meeting that starts on Wednesday to discuss how to end hunger and poverty. Climate change, support for Ukraine in advancing efforts for peace in the Middle East. Then Cameron goes to New York.

The United Kingdom has already rejected statements by Argentina's current president, Javier Mili, who says his country could seek sovereignty over the islands through diplomatic channels. Indeed, the head of the Argentine administration promoted – when he had not yet taken office in the Casa Rosada – a call for dialogue. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak rejected this proposal. “Problem solved,” was his brief response to dismiss that possibility.

When Cameron was prime minister of the UK, he engaged in a war of declaration with then-president Christina Kirchner in 2012 over control of the archipelago.
