ARGENTINA has reacted furiously to upcoming UK military exercises in the “illegally occupied” Falkland Islands and has lodged a formal complaint with the British embassy in Buenos Aires.

The exercises are scheduled to take place from October 15-29 and will involve the use of missile launchers, angering the Argentine government.

In the government’s complaint, they say: “Argentina rejects the holding of these exercises in Argentine territory illegally occupied by the United Kingdom.”

A similar protest was made two years ago despite Britain arguing the exercises are routine.

The Falkland Islands are a disputed area that Argentina says that they have claim to after they gain independence from Spain during the 19th century.
