Both countries have maintained a dispute over the islands' jurisdiction since the 19th century.
Argentina's Foreign Affairs Minister Felipe Sola Thursday rejected the British military maneuvers in the Malvinas Islands, a territory usurped from the South American country in 1833 which is still in dispute.
"Argentina's government strongly repudiates military maneuvers in our illegitimately occupied territory. It is an unjustified show of force," Sola said.
The patrol ship HMS Forth, the British Infantry Company A, the A400M aircraft, and the Royal Air Force's Typhoon 1435 Flight are part of the military deployment.
"The international community also rejects the military presence in the South Atlantic. The maneuvers are contrary to the region's policy, which calls for peaceful solutions to the sovereignty dispute," he added.
