Visit by Argentina’s Foreign Minister to INTERPOL focuses on global security issues

LYON, France – Argentina’s Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman met with INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble at the world police body’s General Secretariat headquarters today to discuss a range of global security issues.

The meeting follows bilateral talks between Argentine and Iranian officials to ‘implement the terms’ of the Memorandum of Understanding signed by both countries in January this year on investigations in relation to the 1994 terrorist bombing of the Israeli-Argentine Mutual Association (AMIA) centre in Buenos Aires.

Secretary General Noble welcomed the updated developments between the two countries and again reiterated his commitment to facilitate any progress in the case if requested. The INTERPOL Chief, who will visit both Argentina and Iran in 2014, also confirmed that the Organization’s position regarding the Red Notices in connection with the case remains unchanged.

During his visit Mr Timerman said that Argentina will formally recognize the INTERPOL Travel Document to expedite the visa process for officials travelling internationally on official INTERPOL business when assisting in transnational investigations or urgent deployments.
