Argentina on Friday complained about a British military and naval training exercise that took place recently near the Falkland Islands, known as 'Malvinas' by the South American country.
Argentine Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich said on Friday that the exercise demonstrated a "growing level of militarisation.

"That implies a level of dialogue destined towards the re-vindication of our sovereignty over the islands, because we also believe this should be a zone of peace," he added.

The British Ministry of Defence said Friday that a patrol ship was on a routine training exercise that had been planned in advance.

It said the exercise took place more than three weeks ago.

Argentina lost a brief but bloody 1982 war with Britain over the South Atlantic archipelago and still claims the islands.
