Iran ready to discuss 1994 Argentinian bombings

July 16, 2011 23:31

The Iranian Foreign Ministry stated on Saturday that Tehran was ready to discuss the deadly bombings at the Argentine Jewish Community center in Buenos Aires in 1994 in order to "prevent the possibility that the investigation will continue in the wrong direction."

Iran seeks to clear suspicion that it was in any way involved in the attacks which killed 85 people, and offered to conduct a discussion with the Argentine authorities about the bombings in efforts to clear its name and renew economic ties with Argentina.

Iran's suspected involvement in the 1994 Buenos Aires Jewish Community Center bombings have recently interfered with Iranian attempts to extend influence to South America. In June, Bolivia deported Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi because he was suspected to have planned the bombings.
