Iran calls Foreign Minister for a meeting at UN
Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi summoned his Argentine counterpart Héctor Timerman for a meeting to be held next week at the United Nations General Assembly, the Ministry reported.
Argentina is expected to announce during the annual assembly it will freeze bilateral relations with Iran due to the lack of cooperation with the country's justice to clear up the AMIA terrorist attack.
Last year, the government had opened the dialogue with Ahmadinejad's administraion, and President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner had requested UN ambassador and current ambassador in the US, Jorge Argüello, to remain at the floor during the president's speech for the first time since they reached the Executive branch.
As the dialogue failed, it was expected that Argentina's representative Mateo Estemé would leave the floor during Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN.
