Israel has expressed "disappointment" over talks between Argentina and Iran about a deadly 1994 attack in Buenos Aires.

The foreign ministers of Iran and Argentina met in New York on September 27 to advance the investigation into the bombing on a Jewish center in which 85 people were killed.

Argentina’s Foreign Minister Hector Timerman said the two sides had agreed to continue their dialogue "until a solution is found" and would hold a new round of talks in Geneva in October.

Argentina has indicted and sought the extradition of eight Iranians over the attack.

In a statement on September 28, the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires said there was "no room for doubt" that Iran was responsible for the attack, and that the decision to bomb the building was made "at the highest levels of the Iranian government."
