HMS Montrose was scheduled to dock at Peru’s El Callao naval base this week,

but the visit has been cancelled by Peru in a show of solidarity with Argentina.

has criticised Britain’s territorial rights to the Falkland Islands,

known in Latin America as the Malvinas.

which saw Argentine forces invade and occupy the islands

before British troops managed to successfully recapture the region.
