Timerman meets with Israeli ambassador, expresses 'irritation'
Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman met with Israeli ambassador to Argentina Dorit Shavit, and expressed the “surprise and irritation” that the National Government felt after learning that Tel Aviv had demanded an explanation from Argentine ambassador to Israel with regards to the recent agreement between Argentina and Iran.
According to official ministry sources, Timerman “expressed the surprise and irritation” caused by the Israeli government’s decision to summon ambassador Carlos García to provide explanations regarding the memorandum of mutual understanding signed by Argentina to move forward in the investigation of the 1994 AMIA bombing.
“This is a sovereign act that doest not include the state of Israel,” the ministry announced in a written statement.
The head of the Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador and met with her at the ministry’s offices.
