Bolivia apologized to Argentina regarding Irani Ahmad Vahidi

Bolivia’s current president met with Ando Donzis, President of the Jewish Community in Argentina (DAIA) and apologized for having Ahmad Vahidi as a guest of honor in military ceremonies (anniversary of the airforce academy and inauguration of the ALBA alliance military school). Mr. Donzis recognized it is not frequent presidents acknowledge their mistakes. Initially Bolivian officials denied knowing about Vahidi’s participation in the 1994 terrorist attack.

Bolivia has strengthened its relations with Iran, ever since this president took office in 2006. Both countries are jointly working in military affairs, military weapons, security and intelligence, nuclear energy, mining, agriculture, industry and health among others (as reported in the following link).
