The Falkland Islands Government (FIG) is supporting the investigation which is an extension of work carried out after the 1982 Falkland Islands War.

In a statement issued today FIG said: "It is right that we continue in our efforts to determine whether or not these reports are correct, which means engaging with Argentine officials and the International Committee of the Red Cross to determine the next steps in this process. As this is an ongoing investigation no further comment will be made at this stage."
