CFK defends AMIA deal with Iran
Buenos Aires Herald, Mar 1 2013

At the opening ceremony of the legislative year, President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner addressed the agreement signed with Iran to probe the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Beunos Aires which the Lower House signed into law this week. She responded to opposition leaders who accused her government of seeking trade prospects through the AMIA deal, and denied opposition rumors that there were negotiations under way to supply nuclear material to Iran. She said:

No one, even today, knows the truth about the 1994 bombing. My commitment with this case is to know the truth, not only what happened abroad but what happened here too. I want to know who were the ones to cover-up, to hide evidence. I deserve to know it, as an Argentinean, and the victims and their families deserve it too.

She targeted what she considered both foreign and domestic involvement in the attack, and condemned the “complicity” of Jewish community leaders. As she had already warned when first announcing the deal with Iran on her official Twitter account a month ago, she said she will not allow the 1994 tragedy to be used for “international geopolitical purposes.”
