Background: Talks on the Falklands crisis are continuing under the United nations Secretary-General, Javier Perez de Cuellar. On the British side, chief united Nations delegate, Sir Anthony Parson, and on the Argentine, deputy foreign minister Enrique Ros. The talks have focussed on a plan for a ceasefire, mutual troop withdrawals, the installation of an interim impartial administration in the Falklands, and UN-sponsored negotiations on a long term settlement. In an interview with newsmen, Sir Anthony Parson said he had just met the Secretary-General, and as far as he was concerned, talks were still going ahead. The Secretary-General said the fundamental issues were being tackled with a sense of purpose and determination. But he made no comment on the issue of sovereignty. He expected further answers from Argentina and Britain on the latest ideas through the capital, Lima, on Wednesday (12 May) in a noisy protest against British policy in the Falklands. they chanted "English pirates" and burned the British flag. The demonstration, believed to be the first in Peru for about 20 years, was organised by a coalition of political parties, trade unions, student and religious groups. it lasted for five hours and passed off without incident. In Argentina, cattle dealers have lent buenos Aires on Tuesday (11 May). They raised three billion 8-hundred-million pesos (about 200,000 dollars) for the Argentine campaign. Crowds watching the auction also gave money.
