In an increasingly tense war of words, Argentinian Foreign Minister Hector Timberman claims the UK is deploying nuclear weapons near the Falkland Islands.
Britain and Argentina went to war over the disputed British-ruled Falkland Islands in 1982, and London rejects Argentine demands for sovereignty negotiations unless the roughly 3,000 islanders want talks to be held.
Mr Timerman urged the UN to intervene in the long-running dispute over the islands. He said that Buenos Aires had intelligence that the British nuclear submarine, Vanguard, had been deployed in the area.
