Iran: Envoys’ talks on AMIA confession to state-sponsored terrorism

Tehran, Jan 16, IRNA – Two Zionist regime ambassadors’ comments on AMIA (Jewish center in Argentina) explosion were clear confessions to Israel’s committing of state sponsored terrorism, foreign ministry spokeswoman said on Wednesday night.

Two former ambassadors of the racist Zionist regime have recently argued that most of the people involved in the AMIA Jewish Center in Argentina have been assassinated by the Tel Aviv regime.

“Such comments are clear confessions to state-sponsored terrorism and need to be condemned by civilized and peace loving governments and nations,” said Marziyeh Afkham.

She added that such comments also indicate that the Zionist regime had from the very beginning been well aware about the identity of the agents who committed that crime and has systematically tried to omit them physically, so that their identities and the realities about the crime would remain concealed for good.

Afkham added, “If the Zionist regime, as it claims, was aware of the identity of those individuals, why had it kept information secret thus far and what for has it been accusing the Iranian citizens of committing this crime during the course of the past 20 years?”

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has many times announced in talks with Argentinean officials that accusing Iranian citizens in case of the AMIA explosion is an instrument aimed at concealing the real agents involved in that crime, and now the comments by these (two) ambassadors bear proof to that reality,” added the Foreign Ministry spokesperson.

Afkham reiterated that the Iranian Foreign Ministry has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Argentina government last year to contribute to the clarification of the case for the world nations, and now, too, we are involved in talks about the details for implementing that MOU.

“Negotiations are proceeding well, and we hope the Iranian and Argentinean governments will cooperate fruitfully in revealing the criminal hands involved in this crime, and take a joint step for implementing justice,” she said.

Former Israeli ambassador to Argentina said that his country has already killed most of the perpetrators of the bombing of the AMIA building in Buenos Aires, AP reported.

Earlier this week, Itzhak Aviran, a former Israel ambassador to Argentina, was quoted by the media as commenting on the 1994 AMIA explosion, saying, “the great majority of the guilty ones are already in the other world, and it was we who did this.”

Argentina has charged several Iranian officials in the case, but Iran has repeatedly denied any involvement in the incident.

Argentina is participating in a joint effort with Iran to resolve the matter through diplomatic cooperation.

Eighty-five people died in the 1994 suicide bombing at the multistory AMIA building and hundreds more were wounded.
