The Argentinean Jewish community expressed hope after Cristina Fernandez´s speech in the GA, where she announced in the United Nations General Assembly that today there would be a meeting between chancellor Hector Timerman and his Iranian counterpart, Ali Akbar Salehi, a meeting promoted by Iran.
AMIA´s president, Guillermo Borger, said yesterday that “it would be a light of hope” if after Iran and Argentina´s meeting in the UN the suspected of having participated in the AMIA bombing in 1994 present themselves to the Argentinean justice.
“If after this meeting there is still an intervention from the justice, it is, without doubt, a new light of hope”, he said to the Jewish News Agency.
At the same time, the Jewish leader said: “I wish there is progress so that this people (the suspected Iranian) present themselves to the Argentinean justice and defend themselves to prove that they didn\’t participate”.
DAIA´s president, Aldo Donzis, said he was satisfied with Cristina Fernandez´s speech: “I think it was very good that it was stated with that energy once again to resolve the bombings against Argentina (she also mentioned the Israel Embassy attack) and to outline that it affected Argentinean citizens".
The Jewish leader also said that “it was very good that the president has expressed the need that Iran, pointed out by the Argentinean justice as the responsible, contributes and cooperate to find out the truth”.
“About the meeting between the two foreign ministries, we have expressed that the only way to meet is to establish the legal mechanisms to progress in the court case”, he said.
According to what Donzis interpreted, this meeting is oriented to find a way “to face the situation about the suspected´s statement”.
He also valued Fernandez´s decision that the Iranian proposal “won´t be closed only to the Executive” and will be shared with the Legislature, which, according to his opinion, “will have a greater opening”.
