Argentina, Iran meet at UN office to discuss AMIA case
Officials from the Argentine and Iranian governments met today in Geneva in their first work session surrounding the case investigating the terrorist attack against the AMIA Jewish community organization in 1994.
Both delegations met for more than two hours in one of the Palais des Nations (UN) office, but the officials remained under secrecy before and after the encounter.
Neither the Argentine envoy nor Iran's gave declarations to the press over the issues debated in the meeting, and close sources stated that if there is going to be an official statement, it will probably be given in the capital Cities, respectively.
The Argentine delegation was headed by the attorney Angelina Abbona, joined by the Deputy Foreign Minister Eduardo Zuain and ambassador Susana Ruiz Cerruti.
At the end of September, Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman was instructed by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to meet with his Iranian counterpart Alí Akbar Salehi, in order to work towards finding a “legal mechanism” that is compatible with the judicial systems of both nations.
