Falklands: The British are seeking U.S. support
February 24, 2013
The new Secretary of State of the United States, John Kerry will travel Monday to the United Kingdom and the British will use the occasion to pressure the administration of Barack Obama to leave a neutral attitude on the Malvinas case.
The British Foreign Minister William Hague will raise to Kerry the issue of the referendum to be held in the islands on March 10 and 11, in order the North American country to take a stand.
U.S. already said recognizing the “de facto management” of Britain over the Falkland Islands but “takes no position on the question of sovereignty.”
The British want to turn that position in order that Obama supports kelpers imminent decision to follow under the administration of the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, Argentina has the support of Latin American and 54 African countries in its sovereignty claim.
