The Argentine Foreign Ministry confirmed that President Cristina Fernández will for the second consecutive year not attend the AMIA Jewish community association’s memorial to commemorate the anniversary of the terrorist attack on its headquarters, which killed 85 and injured more than 300 in 1994.

Relations between the president and the majority of the Jewish community have been tense since the Kirchnerite majority at Congress ratified a treaty with Iran to jointly investigate the bombing.

Prosecutor Alberto Nisman and the Argentine Judiciary have indicted former and current officials of the Teheran regime for their alleged involvement, leading Interpol to grant the request to issue arrest warrants for them.

The commemoration will be staged at the Pasteur 833 headquarters at 9:53 on Thursday, the exact time a bomb was detonated there in 1994.

President Cristina Fernández will be in Colombia meeting with President Juan Manuel Santos.

The event, jointly organized by two Jewish organizations, AMIA and DAIA groupings, will take place under the slogan of: “19 years, the wound is still open.”

    It’s not a secret by any means, but Argentina and China have been getting their collective heads together to discuss licence production of the single seat aircraft, and thus re-invigorate the Argentine Air Force (Fuerza Aérea Argentina – FAA) with a more contemporary jet fighter.
