Argentina lodges complaint about UK “militarisation” of South Atlantic

10 February 2012

An official complaint has been made at the United Nations by Argentina over what it says is the militarisation of the South Atlantic and more precisely the Falkland Islands or Malvinas.

The archipelago, which is situated 300 miles off the coast of Argentina in the South Atlantic, is a British overseas territory.

The two countries fought a war in 1982 when Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands (Malvinas).
