BUENOS AIRES -- Argentinean Foreign Minster Hector Timerman visited the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, one month after his government recognized a unilateral Palestinian state.

Timerman, who is Jewish, met with Jewish community leaders Feb. 2 to tell them that the government is working to bring the AMIA bombers to justice. The 1994 attack killed 85 and wounded hundreds.

He also discussed with the leaders the recent mass Latin American recognition of a unilaterally declared Palestinian state, and the ongoing uprisings in the Middle East.

On Dec. 6, 2010, Timerman issued an official government statement recognizing a unilateral Palestine state, joining Brazil and triggering mass Latin American support for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

In response to this statement, AMIA President Guillermo Borger at the time expressed "concern over the recognition of a state which is not such, and cannot guarantee the security of Israel."
