The US has begun exploratory drilling in the Falkland Islands

A US oil exploration crew has begun drilling exploratory wells in the waters off the Falklands Islands in a sign of US interest in exploring the South Atlantic oil industry.

The US Embassy in London confirmed that a US crew was drilling explorations on the island chain, where British military officials have ruled out involvement in the country’s sovereignty dispute with Argentina over the Falklander Islands.

The US has said that it has no intention of taking any military action in the disputed South Atlantic region.

It has said it will only use force if necessary to protect its interests.

US officials have been reluctant to use force in the region because of the risk of an accidental or deliberate escalation, but officials in London and Washington have been careful to stress that they are not contemplating taking military action.

Falklands conflict: Argentina’s Foreign Minister says there will be no ‘provocation’ in response to US drills article Argentine Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra has said there will not be any “provocation” in response in case a US drill in the British overseas territory of the Falkels ends up harming Argentina’s sovereignty.

Malcorra, speaking in Washington on Tuesday, said she was speaking to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and was concerned about what he called “unacceptable” behavior by the US.

“I think the United States has an obligation to respect the Falklanders sovereignty,” she said, adding that it would take no action “unless there was a breach of sovereignty or an incursion” by the United Kingdom.

She did not specify what would happen if the US drill turned out to be a mistake.

Last week, the US said it would stop drilling exploratories if they ended up harming the sovereignty of the British territory.
