Europe and all That

Crozier, Brian
June 1982
National Review;6/25/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 12, p750
The article focuses on the impact of the conflict in Falkland Islands on the European Economic Community. The initial impact of the conflict between Great Britain and Argentina led the European Community to recognize Great Britain as the injured party and condemn the Argentinean aggression through imposition of economic sanctions. British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has decided to send a naval task force to the South Atlantic and use it against the Argentinean Communists. There are continuing tensions in Europe over farm prices and Common Market budgetary contributions. Prime Minister Thatcher expressed her appreciation on the solidarity shown by the French government for solution of the conflict.
