Egyptian Delegation Calls for Removing Obstacles to Relations with Iran

"Iran and Egypt have had friendly, brotherly and respectable relations at formal and popular levels. Their ties darkened for a period of time, but it was temporary and the relations between the two countries have now returned to their natural track after the cause of this darkening was removed," the 45-member Egyptian delegation said in a statement.

"Now it seems that there is no reason for the severance of ties between the two countries and both states should resume their relations once again and the regional countries should also consider these (Tehran-Cairo) relations as a role model for their ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran," the statement added.

The Egyptian delegation pointed to its negotiations with the Iranian officials on the expansion of trade, commercial, industrial, agricultural, tourism and educational relations between Tehran and Cairo, and said Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other officials have announced their eagerness to reinvigorate relations with Cairo and Egyptian officials should now respond to this tendency properly.

After the collapse of Hosni Mubarak's regime, the Iranian and Egyptian officials voiced their interest in the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries and Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi officially invited his Egyptian counterpart Nabil al-Arabi to pay a visit to Tehran.

The Iranian foreign minister and his Egyptian counterpart also held a meeting in Bali, Indonesia last week.

During the meeting which took place on the sidelines of a ministerial meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the two diplomats conferred on ways to promote the bilateral relations between Tehran and Cairo, and stressed the need for continued consultations in this regard.

Al-Arabi had earlier announced that Cairo would soon open a new page with Iran.
