Corbyn to return soveriegnty of Chagos to Mauritius

The British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would ‘right the wrongs of history’ by granting sovereignty of the Chagos Islands to Mauritius. In 1968, Mauritius gained its independence from Britain but the cost was the scission of the Islands of Chagos from the country.

The U.S. is leasing the Islands from the UK and they built a nuclear base on the illegally split territory.

The UK government under Boris Johnson refused to comply to a deadline set by the UN to return the territory to Mauritius.

The deadline expired on Friday last.
