Iran: Argentina´s accusations 'ridiculous'
After Argentina's Congress passed into law the Memorandum of Understanding to probe the investigation over the 1994 AMIA bombing, the government of Iran considered the accusations against its officials “ridiculous” and warned the parliamentary debate in Tehran could be held up.
According to the legal expert of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Mosher Dahaban, the Middle East country “ignores” who are responsible for the 1994 attack.
“The best way to cover up something is to accuse someone who has nothing to do with it”, Dahaban told a local radio station.
The Iranian official also explained that the Buenos Aires-Tehran accord cannot be modified leading to a full ratification or rejection.
The Parliament of Iran –where support to president Mahmud Ahmadineyad has crumbled since the 2012 legislative elections- has began to analyze the agreement signed with Argentina although Iranian lawmakers are currently focused on discussions over the 2013 budget.
