A major discloser by American whistle blower Edward Snowden claims that British government spied on Argentina between 2006 and 2011.

The former analyst at NSA released some documents alleging that the British government acquired intelligence through computer viruses to discredit Argentinean government and propagate negative propaganda against it, reported an English newspaper.

The spying was supposedly done because the British thought that Argentina was planning to launch an attack to reclaim Falkland Islands, quoted the Independent.

Both the British and the Argentine governments have not responded to the allegation.
