BUENOS AIRES - Relatives of victims of the deadly bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires and Jewish leaders are urging their government not to negotiate with Iran.

Hector Timerman, Argentina’s Jewish foreign minister, met recently at UN headquarters in New York with his Iranian counterpart, Ali Akbar Salehi, about the July 1994 bombing on the Jewish community's main building, and the two countries said they would continue negotiations through government officials in Geneva.

Iran is accused of directing the attack, which killed 85 and injured hundreds. The Lebanon-based terror group Hezbollah allegedly carried out the attack.
