Argentina, Iran to meet at UN office to discuss AMIA case
Officials from the Argentine and Iranian governments will meet on Monday in their first work session surrounding the case investigating the terrorist attack against the AMIA Jewish community organization in 1994.
The legal representatives designated by Argentina and the Islamic Republic of Iran will meet within the terms agreed during the meeting held by foreign ministers from both nations last September 27th.
The meeting is scheduled to take place in the Geneva offices of the United Nations, the Foreign Ministry announced in a press statement.
The Argentine delegation is headed by the attorney Angelina Abbona, who will be joined by the Deputy Foreign Minister Eduardo Zuain and ambassador Susana Ruiz Cerruti.
At the end of September, Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman was instructed by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to meet with his Iranian counterpart Alí Akbar Salehi, in order to work towards finding a “legal mechanism” that is compatible with the judicial systems of both nations.
