J'lem to avoid ‘ping-pong’ with BA over panel with Iran

Jerusalem said what it wanted to say about the Argentinean-Iranian agreement to establish a “truth committee” to investigate the 1994 AMIA bombing, and will now avoid getting into a nasty public “ping-pong” with Buenos Aires over the matter, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.

The spokesman’s comment came after Buenos Aires responded angrily to Israel’s summoning of its ambassador to the Foreign Ministry on Tuesday, where Israel protested the move.

The Argentinean Foreign Ministry issued a statement slamming Israel’s protest, saying that summoning the ambassador was “improper” and “against the traditional, friendly relationship” between the two countries.

“The attack against the people of our country on July 18, 1994, did not involve any Israeli citizen,” the statement read. “The victims were mostly Argentines and included six Bolivians, two Poles and one Chilean.”
