Venezuela threatens Britain over Falklands as its president vows to side with Argentina


The Ecuadorian president is calling for sanctions against Britain for its
long-running dispute with Argentina over who owns the Falkland Islands.
President Rafael Correa urged tougher measures, accusing Britain of refusing
to negotiate with Argentina about the disputed archipelago that has sparked
diplomatic wrangling between the two nations for decades.
"It is time that Latin America decides on sanctions against that misplaced
power that intends to be imperial and colonialist in the 21 Century," Correa
said at a meeting of the ALBA bloc on Saturday. "I believe that we should go to
things stronger."

ALBA, or Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America, is made up of
various nations, including Venezuela, Cuba, Ecuador and Bolivia.
Argentina and Britain went to war over the archipelago in 1982, and their
leaders have exchanged bitter war of words
