President Cristina Fernandez has said Argentina will open a museum to honour its soldiers who died during the Falklands conflict with the UK in 1982.

She said the $20m museum would be inaugurated in August 2013.

It would be in the former navy school used as a detention centre during the military rule in Argentina in 1976-83.

Argentina has stepped its territorial claim to the Falkland Islands, which it calls the Malvinas, ahead of next month's anniversary of the conflict.

However, the UK says it will not discuss sovereignty as long as the Falkland Islanders wish to remain British.
