The Falkland Islands

Showcase in my school

The Falkland Islands, which are governed by the United Kingdom, lie in the Atlantic Ocean about 500km off the coast of Argentina. They are surrounded by rich fishing grounds and oil reserves. The islands are also claimed by the Argentinians, who call them the Islas Malvinas. On 2 April 1982, Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands. As a result, The United Kingdom sent an expeditionary force to retake the islands. The Falkland Islands announced it would hold a referendum over its political status in early 2013, with the objective of sending "a firm message to Argentina that islanders want to remain British".
