Argentina asks Russia to arrest Ali Akbar Velayati
Ali Akbar Velayati, the adviser to the international affairs of the Iranian regime’s leader, arrived in Moscow on Wednesday, July 11th to send a “message” to the Kremlin from Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, Iranian news agency said.
According to Iran’s state agency, Ali Akbar Velayati described this visit as a warning especially for the Russian side that crossing the Iranian red lines in Syria and the future can harm the strategic partnerships of both sides, and in particular, undermine the interests of Russia in Syria.
Following news reports of the visit, an Argentinian Judge, Rodolfo Canicoba Corral requested the arrest of Velayati. a senior advisor to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, for his role in the 1994 AMIA Jewish center bombing that left 85 people and over 300 injured.
On 25 October 2006, Argentine prosecutors Alberto Nisman accused the government of Iran of directing the bombing, and the Hezbollah militia of carrying it out.
There has been an international arrest warrant against Velayati and seven other Iranian officials since 2006.
