Falklands talks dead
Britain approves plan
to attack, reports say

From AP and UPI
Britisn Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher declared yesterday there was
almost no chance of settling the
Falkland Islands crisis peacefully and
reportedly gave the British fleet the go-
ahead to launch a series of commando
raids on the Argentine-held islands.
U.N. Secretary-General Javier Perez
de Cuellar said last night he had given
up his efforts to mediate a peaceful
ON THE Falklands, Argentine troops
braced for an invasion that the official
Telam news agency said would be
"suicide" for the British. No fighting
was reported around the South Atlantic
islands yesterday, following reports of
a British bombing run and shelling of
targets on the islands Wednesday.
Perez de Cuellar announced in New
York that he had given up after 12 days
of separate talks with British and
Argentine diplomats and an urgent ap-
peal Wednesday night to Thatcher and
Argentine President Leopoldo Galtieri.
At a brief new conference, Perez de
Cuellar made public a letter to the
president of the Security Council, Chin-
ese Ambassador Qing Ling, saying he
believed his efforts "do not offer the
present prospect of bringing about an
end to the crisis, nor, indeed, of preven-
ting the intensification of the conflict."
ARGENTINE Foreign Minister
Nicanor Costa Mendez held a news con-
ference in Buenos Aires at the same
time, declaring that Argentina still
wants to avoid war, but Britain is "ob-
sessed" with "maintaining colonialism
that has no rational explanation in
today's world."
Be said Argentina showed flexibility
in the talks, and blamed Britain for
their failure.
Earlier, Thatcher said A:rgentine in-
transigence put the crisis in a "new and
even more serious phase."
AFTER A briefing for British
military correspondents, Press
Association reported that the comman-
der of the British task force "has been
given the go-ahead or a series of lan-
dings and hit-and-run raids on the

now be tightened 'quite steeply and
