Ahmadinejad hopes for better ties with Argentina after talks
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he hopes scheduled talks with Argentina will lead to better ties.
Argentina announced on Tuesday that the countries' foreign ministers will meet in New York and are expected to discuss the 1990’s bombings of Jewish community centre and the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires., in which Iran is alleged to have played a role. Iran has denied any participation in the bombings.
There were "misunderstandings" in Iran's ties with Argentina due to the "interference and the meddling of others," Ahmadinejad told a news conference in New York. "I am hopeful that the dialogue of the two foreign ministers can lay the foundations ... to realize this goal" of better relations.
