OIC Secretary-General Calls for Improving Ties between Iran, Egypt

He made the remarks in a press conference in Cairo after meeting Egyptian foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi, underlining the importance of consolidation between Iran and Egypt.

The amicable ties between the two countries are beneficial to the Islamic high interests, he added.

Ihsanoglu also said that Iran and Egypt are among the biggest Muslim countries and the two countries should create consolidation among themselves and bilateral relations should be expanded and this would be beneficial to stability in the region.

His remarks came after Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi officially invited Egypt's newly appointed Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi to pay a visit to Tehran.

According to a report by Egyptian daily al-Ahram, the invitation letter was submitted to the Egyptian foreign minister during a meeting between Director of Iran's Interest Section in Cairo Mojtaba Amani and al-Arabi.

The report quoted the spokesman of the Egyptian foreign ministry as saying that Salehi in his message had lauded the recently uttered positive remarks by al-Arabi about the promotion of bilateral ties with Iran.

Al-Arabi in his first press conference last month announced Cairo's preparedness to open "a new page with Iran".

The official went on to say that the Egyptian government does not see Iran as an enemy state, noting the two countries have historically rooted relations.

He further stated that the establishment of diplomatic ties depends on the Iranian side.

In reply, Salehi also said that Iran is ready to resume relations with Cairo.
