Britain is militarising Falklands, Argentina tells UN | The Guardian

Argentina has lodged a formal protest at the United Nations over Britain’s “militarisation” of the Falkland Islands, further fuelling the row between London and Buenos Aires.

The Argentinian foreign minister, Héctor Timerman, presented a complaint on Friday to the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, who expressed concern about the increasingly strong exchanges in a summary of the meeting given by his office to reporters.

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced the move earlier this week as part of her strategy to internationalise Argentina’s campaign over the disputed south Atlantic islands.
