Salehi defends Iran-Argentina agreement
Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi ratified that the only premise behind the agreement with Argentina to jointly investigate the 1994 AMIA terrorist attack by establishing a Truth Commission was to resolve the crime.
Speaking to the Iranian press, Salehi, insisting that Iran was not responsible for the attack, which he condemned, affirmed: “The (content) of the accord between Iran and Argentina regarding the AMIA issue will be disseminated at the right moment and the issue (of Iranian suspects) is included and we are following it up.”
Asked the foreign minister about the interrogation of the high-ranking Iranian officials accused, Salehi said: “One of the issues over which we have reached an agreement with the Argentine government in the memorandum (of understanding) is that,” adding that attempts by “malicious people who want to isolate Iran” will fail.
