The chancellery expressed his strongest condemnation to the approval of Ahmad Vahidi and the appointment of Mohsen Rezai, accused of the attack against the AMIA, in ministerial positions in the government of Iran.
In a statement, the portfolio led by Felipe Solá stated that “The Argentine Republic reiterates, as it had the opportunity to state at the time of making known the nomination of Ahmad Vahidi to occupy the post of Minister of the Interior of Iran, a position to which he has been confirmed by the Parliament of that country on the date, that this approval, together with the appointment of Mohsen Rezai as Vice President of Economic Affairs, constitute an affront to Argentine justice and to the victims of the brutal terrorist attack against the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) “.
“Rezai, like Vahidi, is the object of claim by the Argentine Justice for having had a key participation in the decision-making and planning of the attack committed on July 18, 1994 in the AMIA building and an international arrest warrant from INTERPOL weighs on him, “he added the note.
In particular, “it is appropriate to recall that in April 2014 the Argentine Government replied by note to the consultation of a third country on the attitude that would be adopted if an invitation to Rezai was made, that our country would request the immediate application of the extradition treaty in force with him. “
The Argentine Government “demands once again the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to cooperate fully with the Argentine Justice, allowing the people who have been accused of participating in the attack against the AMIA to be tried by the competent courts,” he concludes. the notice.
