UK to boost falkland island defenses

Recommended Posts

Britain will spend £280m over the next 10 years on renewing and beefing up its defences of the Falkland Islands.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon told the BBC "any future and possible threats" to the islands had to be taken into account.

The long-running dispute over the British overseas territory has has been heightened in recent years.

Mr Fallon said the government was committed to protecting the islanders' "right to remain British".

Britain is to deploy two RAF Chinook transport helicopters to help the islands' garrison to help mount a "swift and decisive response" to any "emerging incidents," Mr Fallon told MPs.
