Argentina, Iran Say to Talk Until 1990s Bombings of Jewish Targets Resolved

Argentina and Iran will keep talking until they resolve diplomatically sensitive issues stemming from two 1990s attacks on Jewish targets in Buenos Aires that were allegedly sponsored by Tehran, both countries said on Thursday.

Dialogue with Tehran is risky for Argentina, even if the focus is on Tehran’s possible culpability in a pair of bombings. The opening of a diplomatic channel with Tehran could anger the United States and Israel, which are seeking to isolate Iran as it appears to pursue nuclear weapons.

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez surprised the United Nations General Assembly this week by announcing the talks.

The foreign ministers of the two countries held their first meeting at UN headquarters in New York. They issued a statement saying their lawyers will meet next month in Geneva.
