US 'skeptical' over Argentina-Iran panel on AMIA bombing

January 31, 2013 21:48

 The United States said Thursday that it was skeptical that a just solution would result from the formation of a joint Argentinian-Iranian "truth committee" to investigate the 1994 AMIA bombing.

"Iran’s record of cooperation with international authorities is profoundly deficient, which underlines the concern that its engagement on this matter be focused on achieving justice promptly," the State Department said at a daily press briefing.

"We continue to stress that the Iranian government has a responsibility to cooperate fully with Argentine authorities in seeing that the perpetrators are brought to justice," it added.
