That this House notes that this year marks the 27th anniversary of the Falklands Islands conflict; recalls the magnificent sacrifices made by Her Majesty's armed forces in heroically liberating the Islands and securing the unconditional surrender of the Argentine forces who illegally invaded the Islands on 2 April 1982; remains resolutely dedicated to strengthening the historic ties between Britain and the Falkland Islands; reaffirms the continued support of the United Kingdom in maintaining the Islands as a self-governing British Overseas Territory; and looks forward to many more years of the Union Flag flying proudly above Stanley and throughout the Islands.
