Argentine President Cristina Fernández has instructed Ambassador Cecilia Nahón in Washington to formally ask the White House and the State Department to include the AMIA case in their meeting agenda with Iran.

The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Tuesday the request, and added that it was made the previous Thursday through two letters signed by ambassador Nahón, following Cristina Fernandez speech to the UN General Assembly in which she expressed her desire to open up further dialogue with Iran.

“The Republic of Argentina notes and supports the beginning of talks between the United States and Iran as the only path for a peaceful resolution of the conflict,” San Martin Palace indicated in a press release.

In the letters, Nahón underlined the importance of bringing those responsible for the 1994 AMIA bombing, which claimed 85 lives and hundreds of injured, to justice.

”The Republic of Argentina and the United States of America have always cooperated in search of the truth and the need to bring the material and intellectual perpetrators of the attack on the Mutual Israeli Argentine Association (AMIA) headquarters to justice,“ the diplomat explained.

”In the spirit of this commitment, Argentina asks the government of the United States of America to include the terrorist attack against AMIA as a relevant issue in the renewed process of dialogue with the Islamic Republic of Iran. We remain at your service to cooperate in this cause of great importance for our country”, concludes the letter.
