BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — An Iranian accused of masterminding the 1994 bombing of a Jewish cultural center that killed 85 people dismissed the allegations as "lies" on Tuesday and said he won't appear before an Argentine court.

Moshen Rabbani, Iran's former cultural attache in Buenos Aires, was interviewed on Radio Cooperativa by Argentine protest leader Luis D'Elia during a trip to Tehran. That meeting has offended Argentine Jews and the prosecutor investigating the bombing. D'Elia and Rabbani dismissed them as "Zionists" in the radio interview.

Rabbani is among six bombing suspects on Interpol's most-wanted list. He said he should not be considered a fugitive and said Iran "had nothing to do with the bombings."

Argentine prosecutors allege the attack was orchestrated by Iranian government leaders and entrusted to Hizbullah.
