Mr Corbyn said in an interview with the BBC in 2013 that a “degree of joint administration” might resolve the conflict over the Falkland Islands. He has not stepped back from the suggestion since making it.
He said: “Other situations like this, for example the dispute between Finland and Sweden over the Aman Islands, was sorted out by some degree of joint administration while maintaining nationality.
“It was done with Hong Kong, it has been done to some extent with Gibraltar. There is a way forward.

“There is a letter been produced by five nobel peace prize winners all of whom suggest without changing the question of nationality there is room for some kind of discussion and debate.
“Why can’t we respond to that letter and work on that basis rather than upping the ante and spending more and more money on arms.”
