Argentina and Britain talks for new Falkland-round

Jul 29, 1997 02:00 AM

July 14, 1997 British and Argentine officials have been meeting on oil exploration around the disputed Falkland Islands and how to set up joint ventures and protect the environment. The two-nation South West Atlantic Hydrocarbons Commission last met in London in December, when it agreed a timetable for a joint round of oil licensing for a ``Special Cooperation Zone'' south-west of the islands. The government of the British-run islands in the South Atlantic, where Britain and Argentina fought a 10-week war in 1982, awarded permits for exploration in waters close to the islands to 12 companies last October. Britain and Argentina must now hold a joint tender before year-end for licenses for the Special Cooperation Area which straddles the line between the islands and the Argentine mainland.
