No compromise on Falklands self-determination says British PM

British Prime Minister Theresa May pledged that she would “never allow” any compromise on the self-determination of the Falkland Islanders, in a Christmas radio message last week.

“I want you to know that I will never allow anyone to compromise your right to self-determination – a right you freely expressed in the 2013 referendum; and a legacy for which so many paid the ultimate price,” she said in the message that was relayed out to the islands.

“You can count on me as a UK Prime Minister who will do everything possible to support you in realising the full potential of these islands,” she added.
