Bolivia said on Tuesday it had taken steps to ensure that Iran’s defense minister, who is accused by Argentina of planning the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center that killed 85 people, leaves Bolivia immediately.

The statement came in a letter from Bolivia’s foreign minister to his counterpart in Argentina, which said the Iranian minister, Ahmad Vahidi, was in Bolivia at the invitation of the country’s Defense Ministry.

In the letter Bolivia apologized for the invitation, which it called “a grave incident”, and assured Argentina that Vahidi would not be in the country for long.
