C24 Decline Invitation to hold Regional Seminar in the Falkland Islands



 

C24 Decline Invitation to hold Regional Seminar in the Falkland Islands

 

Members  of  the Legislative Assembly Sharon Halford today   announced that the Falkland Islands Government had  invited the UN Decolonisation Committee (the C24) to hold its Annual Regional Seminar in the Falkland Islands this year. MLA Halford said the MLAs had just heard that the invitation had not been accepted.  MLA Halford said:

 

"We are disappointed that our invitation was not accepted. It is our firm belief that the only way for anyone truly to know the Islands and to know the facts behind our lives and our situation is to visit our home.  We offered to host the regional seminar and at the same time we repeated$ our$ invitation for any current or future Chair to visit the Islands. 

 

We also said we would welcome the Committee sending a fact finding mission to the Islands.  We hope that one or more of these things will one day take place these offers remain on the table and   we hope that some sort of visit in the future will then be used as a basis for the Committee's discussions."
