Critics cited Iran's strong commercial links with Argentina; the Iranian defense minister is one of the suspects in the inquiry.

Why Argentina is reaching out to Iran

Argentina and Iran agreed to form a "truth commission" to adjudicate the case of six Iranian suspects in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires. The bombing, which killed 85 people and wounded another 300, was the largest terrorist attack on Argentine soil. Israel protested that the agreement was "like inviting a murderer to investigate the killings he committed."
