— Argentina and Iran have reached a breakthrough in the investigation of a Jewish center bombing that killed 85 people in Buenos Aires 19 years ago.

They have agreed to establish an international truth commission led by an independent legal expert of high moral authority to examine Argentina’s worst terrorist attack. The commissioners will be able to examine evidence gathered by Argentine prosecutors, and travel to Teheran to question the Iranian suspects. It will then issue recommendations to both countries on how to proceed.

President Cristina Fernandez praised the agreement signed Sunday by foreign ministers Hector Timerman and Ali Akbar Salehi as “historic.”

The plan now must be approved by the parliaments of both nations.
