The Argentine Chargé d’Affaires was summoned to the Foreign Office this afternoon.

An FCO spokesperson said:

“We have raised our concerns with the Argentine Charge in London this afternoon, who will report back to Buenos Aires for urgent clarification.

“We made clear that such actions against legitimate commercial activity were a matter of concern not just for the UK, but for the EU as a whole, and that we expect the EU to lodge similar concerns with Argentine authorities.”
