Cameron 'respectfully' disagrees with pope's Falkland stance
Islanders voted to stay British territory in recent referendum15 March, 16:55
Pope Francis has been quoted as describing the Falkland Islands as Argentine soil that was "usurped" by Britain.
In a recent referendum, Falkland islanders overwhelmingly voted to remain an overseas British territory.
"The Falkland Islanders have spoken so clearly about their future, and now other countries right across the world, I hope, will respect and revere this very, very clear result," Cameron said on Tuesday.
Argentina occupied the islands, which it calls Las Malvinas, in 1982 but Britain retook them after a brief but fierce war.
