Argentine–Croatian relations are foreign relations between Argentina and Croatia. The two countries established diplomatic relations on April 13, 1992. Argentina is represented in Croatia through its embassy in Vienna, Austria and Argentina has an honorary consulate in Zagreb. Croatia has an embassy in Buenos Aires.

From 1991 to 1995, Argentina under Carlos Menem illegally sold arms to Croatia for the Croatian War of Independence during Yugoslavia's arms embargo by the United Nations. Some of these shipments were overseen by the French arms dealer Jean-Bernard Lasnaud.[1] The revelation of the shipments and the subsequent Río Tercero explosion in 1995, allegedly by government agents, caused scandal for Menem.
