Bolivian president Evo Morales apologized to the Argentinean Jewish community on Friday for having met with Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi who visited Bolivia at the end of May, Argentine Jewish rights group DAIA said in a statement.

According to DAIA, “President Morales admitted his mistake and apologized,” for Vahidi’s visit to Bolivia, at a meeting in Buenos Aires with several officials from the organization.

Vahidi is on Interpol’s list of suspects wanted in connection with the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in which 85 people were killed and up to 300 injured.
