Falklands Row Expands to Other Nations

Preu has cancelled a visit by a UK warship.

Britain's Foreign Office expressed regret on Tuesday that Peru cancelled a visit by a Royal Navy frigate in a show of support for Argentina over the contested Falkland Islands.
"HMS Montrose was scheduled to make a short visit to Peru as part of a routine deployment to the region. This was agreed as an act of friendship and cooperation between Peru and the UK," a spokesman in London said.
"Ship visits are a sovereign decision for states, but we regret that Peru has revoked its previous agreement to this visit.
