Argentine union to boycott UK ships
Argentina’s transport workers’ union says it will boycott ships flying the British flag because of the dispute over the Falkland Islands.
The union – which includes dock workers – said the measure would apply to all UK vessels reaching Argentina.
It is not clear how much impact the boycott will have.
Tension between the UK and Argentina over the Falklands has been rising in recent months as the 30th anniversary of the Falklands war approaches.
“We have resolved to boycott any ship with the British flag, or with the lying and invented flag of the Falklands, or with any flag of convenience which the British pirates use,” the Argentine Confederation of Transport Workers said in a statement.
