Deputy foreign minister Eduardo Zuain has summoned the British Ambassador in Buenos Aires in a protest over a planned military exercise on the Falkland Islands next week.
A spokesman for the Embassy of Argentina in London said: "The Government of the United Kingdom will conduct military exercises on occupied Argentine territory between 14 and 27 April, including missile launchings from the Malvinas Islands.
"This action falls within a pattern already denounced by President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner on 2 April, consisting of provocations and hostile acts towards Argentina from an extra-continental nuclear power."
