Cameron: 'I made my point with some vigor'
British Prime Minister David Cameron defended the referendum that the Malvinas islanders are planning to carry on 2013 and justified the exchange of words he had with President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner at the G20 Summit, which even some British media outlets labeled “an ambush.”
“I wanted to make absolutely clear to the Argentine President that if she believes in democracy and that she believes in self-determination she should respect the outcome of the referendum,” he said during a press conference.
“I thought it was important to make that point, and I made it with some vigor,” he stated in a press conference in which only representatives from the British media could ask questions.
