Argentina has asked Iran to sign accord allowing the trial in of suspects involved in the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Jewish Mutual Association (AMIA) in Buenos Aires to take place in an agreed upon third country in a speech delivered by Argentinian President Cristina Kirchner to the UN General Assembly on Friday, AFP reported.

Argentinian prosecutors have long alleged that Teheran planned and ordered the 1994 bombing that killed 85 civilians.

Teheran has so far turned down Argentinian requests that it extradite Iranians suspected of involvement in the terror attack.

Kirchner also reaffirmed Argentinian claims to the Falkland Islands during her speech to the General Assembly and criticized the UK's conduct regarding the islands since the 1982 war between the two countries.
