In a joint statement by Defense Minister Patricia Bullrich and Foreign Affairs Minister Diana Mondino, Vahiti was recalled despite it. Interpol red alert.

The note reads “Argentina statement The international arrest of those responsible for the attack on AMIA in 1994, which resulted in the deaths of 85 people, continues in their positions of power with complete impunity.

“One of them, Ahmed Vahidi, is wanted by an Argentine judge as one of the perpetrators of the attack against AMIA,” he added.

Interpol red alert for Ahmed Wahidi.

Vahidi is currently the Interior Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran and is currently part of the government delegation to Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

In this case, at the request of the Argentine authorities, the Interpol central office in Leon issued a red notice for his arrest.

During his visit, “Argentina has requested the governments of Pakistan and Sri Lanka to arrest him as per the instructions provided by Interpol,” he added.

OCN Islamabad will detain the deceased for the purpose of extradition to Argentina.

Who is Wahidi? According to prosecutor Alberto Nisman's investigation, Wahidi, as commander of al-Quds forces, the international expeditionary force of the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, “participated in the meeting where it was decided to carry out the attack. Argentina” and Lebanon’s Hezbollah’s Islamic Jihad were handed over for its execution.

Wahidi and Moshen Rezaei, a 2017 Financial Intelligence Unit report said, were commanders of the al-Quds force and part of a select group that “submitted a plan to attack our country for evaluation at the Office of Intelligence.” The report is based on the opinion of former prosecutor Alberto Nisman and the decisions of former judge Juan Jose Galeano.

The Iranians' political assessment was that then-President Carlos Menem withdrew Argentina from the Non-Aligned Movement, aligned itself with the United States and Israel, and ended the nuclear cooperation agreement for peaceful purposes.

Nisman's verdict was based on the testimony of Iranian dissidents and former Iranian intelligence officials such as C. Abolghasem Mesbahi. They claimed that the 1994 AMIA attack was decided in August 1993 at a secret meeting in Masta city attended by many including Wahidi.

In that opinion, Nisman confirmed the evidence in the AMIA case “allows it to prove that the Iranian government at the time made a decision to attack a Jewish institution in Buenos Aires, and that the decision was made by the Special Affairs Committee at a meeting on August 14, 1993, outside the city of Mashhad.”

In that secret meeting, Nisman continued, “the spiritual guide-Ali Khamenei, the president-Ali Rafsanjani-, the minister of information and security-Ali Fallahijan- and the minister of foreign affairs-Ali Velayadi- participated, the sheikh and then the cultural adviser in Argentina – Mohsen Rabbani – and The third secretary of the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires – Ahmad Askari – participated in the event as advisers and gave their close contact with details of the preparations for the attack.
