A member of the Buenos Aires Jewish community says Kirchner’s comments seemed to accuse Borger of being in contact with foreign spy agencies which are supplying him with information.On January 27, Iran’s Foreign Minister and his Argentinean counterpart Hector Timerman signed an memorandum of understanding for the two countries to shed light on the 1994 bombing of the AMIA building in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people. The Israeli regime reacted angrily to the deal a day after it was signed. “We are stunned by this news item and we will want to receive from the Argentine government a complete picture as to what was agreed upon because this entire affair affects Israel directly,” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Yigal Palmor, said on January 28. In a statement on January 30, however, the Argentinean Foreign Ministry said Israel’s demand for explanation over the agreement, described by Argentinean President Fernandez as “historic,” was an “improper action that is strongly rejected.” Under intense political pressure from the US and Israel, Argentina had formally accused Iran of having carried out the bomb attack. The Islamic Republic has categorically denied any involvement in the terrorist bombing. PG/HGH/SS
