I discussed the US Government’s position on British sovereignty over the Falkland Islands and the Islanders' right of self determination with Assistant Under-Secretary Roberta Jacobson when I visited Washington in July, and senior Foreign Office officials have also raised the issue with their US counterparts. We will continue to do so as appropriate. We will also continue to highlight to the US government specific examples where Argentina’s approach to the Falkland Islands has a direct adverse impact on US as well as UK interests.
