The foreign ministers of Iran and Argentina have met at the United Nations to discuss a deadly 1994 attack in Buenos Aires.

Argentina has accused Iran of masterminding the bombing on a Jewish center that killed 85 people.

Buenos Aires has indicted and sought the extradition of eight Iranians over the massacre.

Following talks between Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman and his Iranian counterpart, Ali Akbar Salehi, at UN headquarters on September 27, a statement said both sides agreed to continue their dialogue "until a solution is found."

The statement said the sides also decided to continue negotiations" in Geneva in October.

It added that the dialogue seeks to "explore a legal mechanism that is not in contradiction with the legal systems of Argentina and Iran."
