British Ambassador: 'Falklands defence hasn't changed'

Argentina has accused the United Kingdom of deploying nuclear weapons.

In a complaint to the UN, the Argentine Foreign Minister suggested Britain was militarising the waters and airspace around the Falkland Islands.

Argentina insists that the British military activity in the South Atlantic is uncalled for.

Mark Lyall Grant, the British Ambassador to the UN, responded to the accusations saying "the only thing that appears to have changed is the politics in Argentina".
