|Iran, Argentina discuss AMIA bombing||
TEHRAN – Iranian and Argentinean representatives were due to meet in Geneva on Monday to resolve the existing misunderstandings regarding the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) building.
“It is a working meeting on the AMIA case under terms agreed during a meeting of foreign ministers September 27 in New York,” the Argentinean Foreign Ministry said in a statement, AFP reported on Sunday.
Iran and Argentina announced on September 27 that they will continue their consultations until the case of Iran’s alleged involvement in the AMIA bombing is resolved.
The announcement was made in a joint statement issued by Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and his Argentine counterpart Hector Timerman after they held their first meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
At the time, the Iranian and Argentine officials stated that their lawyers would meet in Geneva in October.
“The goal is to explore a legal mechanism that does not go against the systems of either Argentina or Iran,” the statement said.
“This process will continue until a mutually agreed solution is found to all issues concerning the case,” it added.
The case of the AMIA attack has remained a mystery for 18 years, and no significant information has been provided by the Argentine government on the main cause of the incident and the real culprits.
The Argentine government only leveled false allegations against the Lebanese Hezbollah and Iran that it could never prove.
