Netanyahu Reaffirms Israel Against Iran Deal as Trump Mulls "New Stance"

The bombing, which has yet to be solved, has been blamed by the Argentine courts on Iran. Iran denies playing a role in either attack.

On September 11, he participated in a ceremony in Buenos Aires to remember victims of bomb attacks at the Israeli Embassy in 1992, and at a Jewish community center in 1994. Critics accuse previous Argentine leader Cristina Fernandez of trying to improve ties with Iran rather than focusing on bringing the bombers to justice. "Iran initiated, planned and carried out the bad terrorist attacks through its proxy, Hezbollah", Netanyahu said in a statement. Hezbollah is an Islamist militant group based in Lebanon.

"He strengthened Argentina's position compared with what it was before".

The leading prosecutor investigating the attack on the AMIA community center was found dead in his apartment with a gunshot wound to the head on January 18, 2015. The death was classified as a suicide, but Nisma's family and friends dismissed that idea as absurd.

Macri won the presidency and succeeded Fernandez in late 2015.

Korea to hold meeting to discuss implementation plans for UNSC sanctions
Now, as Kim's grandson, Kim Jong Un , accelerates his nuclear program, South Korea is again targeting the North's leadership. Connolly protested that Trump had branded South Korea's leader, a supporter of diplomacy with North Korea, as an appeaser.

"We have delivered these digitized historical documents about the Holocaust so the State of Israel can make sure that they are investigated", Macri said, after handing Netanyahu the box with the hard drives.

Netanyahu is traveling with about 30 Israeli corporate representatives looking to increase trade with Latin America.

The five hard drives include almost 140,000 photographs and secret files spanning the years from 1939 to 1950 and include reports, telegraphs and letters that were digitized by Argentina and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC.

"It's incredible that in 70 years of Israel, no prime minister visited any country in the Western Hemisphere south than the United States", Netanyahu said.

Macri, who has met with Nisman's family, says resolving the death of the prosecutor and the bombings remain among his government's top priorities. The diplomatic flurry might take domestic attention off two corruption investigations centering on Netanyahu in Israel.
