Argentina slams Britain's post-Falklands War 'arrogance'
As both countries prepared to mark the 25th anniversary of the outbreak of war on April 2, 1982, Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana denounced parades planned by the British.
"What they want to do is not what (Tony Blair) called a commemoration, but a triumphant military parade, a typical gesture of arrogance," he said.
Those accusations capped a week of Argentine salvos over the Falkland Islands, known here by their Spanish name, the Malvinas.
