Malvinas Secretary Daniel Filmus has blasted today the United Kingdom’s plans to carry out military exercises in the Malvinas Islands, calling them a “colonialist ostentation”.

Filmus followed Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman, who yesterday said the use of surface-to-air missiles in the region is “an act of colonial aggression.”

“The military exercises in Malvinas are colonialist ostentation; they have no other reason to be”, Fimus told reporters.

London said yesterday the military exercises are "routine" and do not pose a threat to anyone in the region. Nevertheless, Filmus pointed out that “the exercises violate several international treaties, as the area has been categorized as a peace zone by African and South American nations.”

“We have presented a formal complaint. Any military maneuvers represent a threat to the region and to the Antarctica, a territory to be used only for scientific research,” Filmus concluded.
