Iranian FM Underscores Promotion of Relations with Cairo

"Both sides are keen to develop the current level of ties. This process would take time but I hope that would happen soon," Salehi said on the sidelines of a ceremony in Pakistan's Embassy in Tehran.

Talking about the possibility of opening embassies in Tehran and Cairo, Salehi said, "When our (diplomatic) relations are developed to the level of ambassador, surely embassies will be opened."

Salehi had earlier 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.
