The Argentine Senate ratified the Iran-Argentina memorandum of understanding on the establishment of a fact-finding mission to investigate the controversial AMIA case on Friday. If the MOU is also ratified in the lower house of the Argentine National Congress, the document will be the first of its kind between the two countries since 1902.
The AMIA MOU may be viewed as a commonplace document by citizens of the two countries. However, if one takes a glance at the analyses and commentaries published in the media, especially in the West, it becomes clear that the development has been a serious setback for the United States and Israel and their anti-Iran efforts.
The document was signed so that the facts can finally be discovered about the AMIA case since many doubts have been raised about the authenticity of Argentina’s claims regarding Iran’s alleged role in the incident over the past few years.
