Falklanders able to decide future in '83, Pym hints

British Foreign Secretary Francis Pym has introduced the possibility that the people of the Falkland Islands, over which Britain and Argentina fought a war earlier this year, might be ready to decide their future sometime next year.

Mr. Pym said the islanders first had to repair their lives and homes after the 10-week Falklands battle. He said there could be no timetable for self-determination for the Falklanders, but added that by next year they perhaps will have had time to make a ''dispassionate assessment and will be ready to talk about what their future should be.''
