Head of the Jewish Agency Nathan Sharansky said on Wednesday that Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman stated his deep commitment to investigating two terrorist bombings against Jews in this South American nation in the 1990s, The Associated Press reported Thursday.

The Argentinain Foreign Ministry issued a statement confirming Timerman met with Sharansky but it did not mention the investigation or the questions about Iran.

Sharansky's comments came after Argentina’s refusal to publicly relate to a tabloid report that it was willing to stop investigating two bombings of Jewish targets there in the 1990s in return for improved economic ties with Tehran.
