Argentina Wouldn’t Receive Ahmadinejad

0 Comentario

The Argentine government would dismiss the possibility of receiving the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, after the strong speech he delivered during the Conference Durban II in which he questioned the Israeli state and minimized the Holocaust.

Speaking with this Agency, the president of AMIA, Guillermo Borger, assured that the Argentinean ambassador to the United States, Hector Timerman, told him that “Argentina wouldn’t receive Ahmadinejad in Buenos Aires”.

The diplomat made such statement during a meeting held with Borger in Washington, which took place during a trip that that Borger made to attend a summit of community leaders organized by the American Jewish Committee (AJC).

Regarding Durban II, Timerman expressed that “it is a meeting that shouldn’t be repeated anymore, because it failed to achieve the goals proposed.”

During the interview, the Argentine ambassador told Borger about the government’s concerns regarding Ahmadinejad’s visit to the region, which, according to IRNA news agency, was suspended for unknown reasons.    

Borger also told this agency that Timerman stated that “The government won’t allow a new wave of anti Semitism to take place” in Argentina, in relation to the sprout of anti-Semitism that took place after Israel’s Operation in the Gaza Strip.

“The meeting with the ambassador was ‘very warm’ and we discussed ‘general issues’,” expressed Borger.

Apart from this, in a dialogue with AJN, Timerman said that “in the meeting, we discussed about the situation of the Jewish community in Argentina, about Durban, about anti-Semitism in the world and in Latin America, and about the relation with the Argentine government, which is ‘very good’.”

Borger traveled to Washington with Amia’s Secretary Tomy Saiehg and with Amia’s Executive Director, Daniel Pomerantz.
