FILE - In this Oct. 3, 2009 file picture, released by Argentina's Foreign Ministry, relatives of Argentine soldiers who died in the 1982 Falklands war between Argentina and Great Britain search for their tombstones in a cemetery in Darwin, East Falkland Island. Tensions between Argentina and Britain rose after British Prime Minister David Cameron approved sending a nuclear submarine to the Falklands before the April 2, 2012 anniversary. Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez said her campaign to recover Argentine territory will remain one of diplomacy and economic pressure, not war.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Tensions are high between Britain and Argentina as the anniversary of the Falklands War approaches.

London's tabloids are depicting Argentina as a dangerous threat 30 years after its invasion. Argentines say it's the Brits who are belligerent.

Both countries claim the South Atlantic islands and the surrounding seas, which are rich in fisheries and could hold vast stores of oil and natural gas. But polls show no support in Buenos Aires for war.

London's Daily Mail reported Saturday that Britain is sending a nuclear submarine to the islands along with its most advanced destroyer.

Argentine Defense Minister Arturo Puricelli says Britain could have avoided the show of force and saved thousands of pounds.
