Khamenei’s adviser dismisses Iran role in Argentina bombing
Velayati, adviser to Khamenei, dismisses the accusation of involvement in Argentina's 1994 terrorist attack
An adviser to Iran’s supreme leader accused of masterminding Argentina’s worst terrorist attack says he is innocent.
Ali Akbar Velayati, a former foreign minister and current adviser to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, spoke to Argentina’s C5N TV channel in an interview broadcast Monday.
The 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center that killed 85 people remains unsolved.
Mohsen Rabbani, the former Iranian cultural attaché in Argentina is also suspected in the bombing. In the interview, he also said the accusations against Iran are baseless.
Former Iranian officials have been on an Interpol capture list for years, but Argentine prosecutors have never been able to question them. Iran has denied any role in the bombing.
Velayati said Monday there’s no reason why an Iranian official should have to respond to another nation
