Obama Says U.S. Is Neutral on Argentina-U.K. Falklands Dispute

President Barack Obama said the U.S. will remain on the sidelines in the dispute between the U.K. and Argentina over the Falkland Islands.

“We’re going to remain neutral,” Obama said at a news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos as the Summit of the Americas concluded in Cartagena. “This is not something that we typically intervene in.”
