Iran Gov't willing to 'cooperate' with AMIA case
The government of Iran stated it is willing to “collaborate” in the case investigating the terrorist attack on the AMIA Jewish community centre in 1994, after warning that the investigation is heading toward a “wrong way” and Prosecutor Alberto Nisman called for the “turn in of the accused.”
A few days before the anniversary of the attack, the Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs published a communiqué in which he assured that he is open to have “a constructive dialogue” with Argentina, because it “condemns all the terrorist attacks, particularly the one against the AMIA in 1994.”
Argentine Justice suspects that Iran was involved in the organization of the two attacks in Buenos Aires City that killed 85 people and injured 300.
“Iran is willing to have a constructive dialogue and cooperate with the Argentine government to bring light over this case based in the law and the mutual respect, to help the judicial investigation to avoid heading to a wrong way,” the communiqué stated.
Iran always ruled out that it was involved in the attacks to the AMIA and rejected to turn in those accused by the Argentine Justice, among them, the Iranian Defence Minister Ahmad Vahidi.
