Falklands: British lawmakers demanded the support of France for possible war
January 24, 2013
Two British lawmakers felt that, before a possible invasion Argentina on the Falkland Islands, the UK government should seek military cooperation to France, after the support of England in the conflict of Mali, Africa.
They are MPs David Crausby, the constituency of Bolton, and Jean Stroud-Mort, representative of Bromley.
During a speech in the House of Commons with the Secretary of State for Defence, Andrew Robathan, both legislators discussed that London should seek assistance from the French government in case of a new military conflict in the South Atlantic Falklands.
According to the position of parliamentarians, France should cooperate with their country, which currently supports it in the conflict of Mali.
However, Robathan replied that it is “unlikely” that Argentina “invade” the Falkland Islands, to note that “there is a clause” in the Constitution “prohibiting it.”
