Argentina's port town of Ushuaia is a popular stop for cruise ships but two British liners have been banned from docking there. It's the latest twist in the wrangle between Argentina and the UK over the Falkland Islands, known in Argentina as the Malvinas. The two countries fought a war over the territory in 1982. Nestor Aguilar, an Argentine veteran of that war, says he's all in favour of a ban on British cruise ships until the dispute is settled. SOUNDBITE: Nestor Aguilar, Falklands war veteran, saying (Spanish): "Really, from my heart I, Nestor Aguilar, a veteran of the Falklands War, consider it good that we are impeding the passing of whatever boat, plane or English person until we have peacefully defined the conditions so they clearly know that the Malvinas (Falklands) are Argentine." The Star Princess, seen here docked at Buenos Aires earlier in February, is one of the ships refused entry to Ushuaia. The second ship was the Adonis. Tensions are rising with the approach of the 30th anniversary of the Falklands conflict this year. Britain is refusing to open negotiations with Argentina over sovereignty of the Falklands unless the islands' 3, 000 inhabitants want it. Paul Chapman, Reuters
