WJC chief expresses trust in Argentine President over bombing investigation

World Jewish President Ronald Lauder expressed his trust in Argentinian President Mauricio Macri’s determination to investigate a 1994 bombing of a Jewish center in Buenos Aires on Wednesday during a meeting of the international Jewish organization’s governing board.

“President Macri, you have promised that after all this time, Argentina will bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice. We believe you. We trust you. And the World Jewish Congress stands with you to help in any way that we can,” Lauder stated before hundreds of Jewish leaders gathered in the Argentinian capital.

Macri, who last year severed a pact with Iran to jointly investigate the attack, which Tehran is suspected of masterminding, said that his administration was "fully committed to contribute in any way we can to make headway with this investigation."
