Iran's foreign ministry spokesman said on Tuesday that Tehran was ready to discuss the 1994 terrorist bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish community center.

Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters that the Iranian and Argentinian foreign ministers had agreed to mutual talks a month ago, Iran's ISNA news agency reported.

85 people were killed and hundreds more injured on July 18, 1994 when a car bomb exploded in front of the AMIA Jewish community center building in the Argentinian capital. Two years earlier, the Islamic Jihad organization bombed the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires.
