Israel Summons Argentina’s Ambassador

As it had indicated it would do, Israel’s foreign ministry on Tuesday protested to Argentina’s ambassador over his country’s agreement with Iran to create an independent commission to investigate the deadly 1994 attack on a Jewish center in Buenos Aires, a spokesman said.

“The ambassador of Argentina in Israel was summoned today to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem for a clarification talk,” ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said in a statement quoted by AFP.

Palmor indicated that Itzhak Shoham, the deputy director general for Latin America, “protested the unacceptable attitude of the Argentine government towards Israel since the beginning of contacts between Buenos Aires and Tehran.”

“Shoham conveyed Israel’s astonishment and disappointment at the Argentine government’s decision to collaborate with Iran after the latter’s responsibility for the bombing of the AMIA Jewish Community Center was exposed by the investigation conducted by the Argentine authorities themselves,” the statement said, according to AFP.
