PORT STANLEY, Falkland Islands — Lawmakers in the far-flung Falkland Islands are rejecting a U.N. commission’s determination that the archipelago would come within Argentina’s maritime territory.

The U.N. commission on the limits of the continental shelf sided with Argentina this week in a dispute with Great Britain going back decades. The commission ratified a 2009 Argentine report that fixed the limit of its territory at 200 to 350 miles from its coast.

Mike Summers is one the local legislative assembly members that govern the British Overseas Territory. He tells The Associated Press the decision “has no effect for the sovereign position of the Falklands.”

In 1982, Argentina invaded and was then routed by British troops. Saturday marks the 34th anniversary of the war.

Islanders and the British government have long rejected Argentina’s claims.
