Opposition seeks to repeal deal with Iran
Radical caucus leader in Congress, Mario Negri assured today that his political party wants to unify opposition members in order to revoke Argentina’s agreement with Iran over the investigation of the Amia attack in 1994.
In that sense, Gerardo Morales, president of the Radical bloc at the Senate affirmed that “we are going to invite all the parliamentarian blocs and national lawmakers who rejected the deal signed with Iran and request the annulment of that agreement.”
According to Negri, the measure is due to “the evident failure of the memorandum and its manifested unconstitutionality”.
In addition, he revealed that authorities from the local Jewish community like AMIA and DAIA will be invited “to accompany the demand in a Congress hearing, next to political representatives from both chambers,” Negri stated.
On February 2013, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration approved a deal with the Republic of Iran, to investigate the responsible for the bombing of the Jewish community center on July 18, 1994, that claimed the lives of 85 people and left 300 seriously injured.
