Falkland Islands in spotlight after exclusion from Brexit deals

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Falkland Islands in spotlight after exclusion from Brexit deals” – below is their description.

The future of the Falkland Islands is being discussed again, after they were excluded from trade deals between the United Kingdom and the European Union.

The British overseas territory will not be part of any commercial, tax or customs agreements negotiated.

And, as Al Jazeera’s Teresa Bo reports, Argentina’s government sees an opportunity.
