LONDON - Britain accused Argentina of "colonialism" in its claim to the Falkland Islands on Wednesday, as the 30th anniversary of their conflict over the British-ruled territory approaches.

A day after Britain's National Security Council discussed the Falklands' defenses, Prime Minister David Cameron told parliament Britain was committed to protecting the South Atlantic islands and added that people there should be allowed to decide their own nationality.

Cameron said he was determined that the islands' defenses were in order and that islanders' wishes were paramount. "We support the Falkland islanders' right to self-determination," he said.

"What the Argentinians have been saying recently I would argue is actually far more like colonialism because these people want to remain British and the Argentinians want them to do something else."
