Asked if there had been any reaction to President Chavez’s attack on The Queen, the PMS said that the Government had long supported the rights of Falkland Islanders to develop their own hydro-carbon sector. The Government believed it was an entirely legitimate commercial activity. The Government was in on-going contact with the Government of Argentina through diplomatic channels on these matters.

Asked if there was any reaction specifically on the speech, the PMS said that it was not unexpected that other Latin American countries and colleagues may adopt a similar view.

Asked whether there would be any leader to contact, the PMS said that diplomatic channels were the best way to work with this issue.

Asked whether there would be any potential military response to the situation in the Falklands, the PMS said no.
