Israel expresses 'disappointment' over Iran agreement
The Israeli foreign ministry communicated its “profound deception” to the Ambassador to Argentina Carlos García, over the agreement between Israel and Iran in the investigation over the1994 AMIA bombing.
“Israel’s discontent and deception over the decision has been communicated,” a diplomat told reporters after leaving a meeting which took place at the Israeli foreign ministry in Jerusalem today.
Israel announced yesterday that García would be chosen to give explanations over an agreement that according to the ministry source “contributed to breaking Iran’s international isolation.”
Another consulted source labelled the conversation with the Argentine diplomat as “serious.”
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced on Sunday that an agreement had been reached with Iran to establish an independent international “truth commission” in the investigation of the 1994 AMIA terrorist attack that killed 85 people in Buenos Aires.
The agreement between Argentina and Iran was signed on Sunday during the African Union summit, in Adia Abeba.
Once the agreement goes through both countries’ parliamentary systems, a commission of jurors will be created, who will oversee court procedures regarding the bombing and will recommend an action plan in order for its transparency.
