Argentina Lauds Iran's Offer on AMIA

"If it were to be carried out, it would mean a singular and very positive step forward because the law and justice are the only road to fighting terror," Argentina's Foreign Minister Hector Timerman said at a Sunday press conference.

Under intense political pressure by the US and the Israeli regime, Argentina formally accused Iran of carrying out the attack on the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that claimed the lives of 85 people and left 300 wounded.

Faced with lack of any evidence for their anti-Iranian allegations, only false and contradictory statements by Iranian dissidents seeking asylum in the West have been used by Argentine's prosecutors to level charges against Tehran. The Islamic Republic has vehemently and consistently denied any involvement in the terror bombing.

This is while in a statement, the Argentine prosecutor investigating the attack, Alberto Nisman, called on Iran to hand over any suspects in the case.

"If the Iranians and their government are ready to cooperate, they should do so once and for all, and the only way possible: by handing over all of those accused in this terrible terrorist attack... and not making statements devoid of content which lead nowhere," AFP quoted prosecutor Alberto Nisman as saying.

The remarks came after Iran expressed readiness to engage in constructive cooperation with the government of Argentina to shed all possible light into the AMIA case within a legal framework and based on mutual respect.
