The response came after Mr Cameron told the Commons on Wednesday: “I would say this: as long as the Falkland Islands want to be sovereign British territory, they should remain sovereign British territory – full stop, end of story.”

Mrs Kirchner has insisted Argentina and Britain should negotiate over the South Atlantic islands, which the two countries fought a 10-week war over in 1982.

Addressing Mr Cameron’s stance, she said: “In the 21st century (Britain) continues to be a crude colonial power in decline.”

She branded Mr Cameron “arrogant” and said his remarks were an expression of “mediocrity and stupidity”.
