star this property answer text <p>Mauritius amended its Constitution in 1982 to include the Chagos Archipelago (which the UK administers as the British Indian Ocean Territory) within its Territory. The Government of Mauritius repeatedly makes the claim both in public and private that the Chagos Archipelago is part of Mauritius. Most recently Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth made this point during his speech at the UN General Assembly in September. The UK is clear about its sovereignty of the British Indian Ocean Territory and strongly rejects Mauritius' claim that the Territory is part of Mauritius.</p> more like this
