CFK demands answers over AMIA attack
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner referred during the 68th United Nations assembly to the AMIA attack in 1994, asking the new president of the middle-eastern nation to give a definitive response over the accord signed almost a year ago.
The project, which commits both countries to commit to an investigation into the perpetrators of the deadly bombing, is subject to uncertainty in Iran where it remains in legal limbo.
“We are hoping they will tell us that the agreement has been approved (in Iran) and to settle a date where a Judge will be able to fly to Tehran”, urged Fernández de Kirchner.
Fernández de Kirchner concluded hoping for “a willingness for agreement” on the part of Iran’s current president Hassan Rouhani, who spoke earlier in the Assembly and assured that “Iran is no threat to the world”.
Over 30 world leaders spoke during the first day of the assembly, which will end on October 1st. The situation in Syria was one of the main topics discussed.
