MP: Israel's Collapse Accelerated by Good Ties between Iran, Egypt

"Iran and Egypt's closeness and establishment of a popular government in Saudi Arabia will change equations in the Middle-East and will leave no room for the influence and infiltration of the Zionist regime and the US," member of the parliament's Article 90 Commission Gholam Reza Asadollahi told reporters on Sunday.

He welcomed the decision by the Iranian and Egyptian officials for resuming bilateral relations between the two Muslim states, and said such ties could help settle an array of problems in the region through increased interaction and would leave positive effects on the region.

The lawmaker further condemned the attempts made by certain western countries to create a rift among the Muslim states, specially in the Middle-East and Persian Gulf regions, and stressed that closeness of Islamic countries, like Iran and Egypt, will boost their power and impair the interests of the US and Israel.

Egyptian Government Spokesman Ahmed Al Saman underlined that his country is determined to resume relations with Iran, and assured that third party can pressure Cairo into changing the decision.

Dismissing the concerns voiced by certain Persian Gulf littoral states about Egypt's decision to resume ties with Iran, he assured these countries that Tehran-Cairo relations would not harm their interests at all.

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 Iran's top diplomat Ali Akbar Salehi officially invited Egypt's newly appointed Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi to pay a visit to Tehran.

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.

Egyptian daily, al-Ahram 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 earlier this 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 establishment of diplomatic ties depends on the Iranian side.

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

Late April, Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Abdulaziz Sharaf shrugged off the alarm raised by some Persian Gulf Arab officials against resumption of Tehran-Cairo relations, and reiterated his country's firm resolve to resume and expand ties with Iran.

"Egypt is trying to begin a new chapter in ties with Iran as one of the world's important countries," Sharaf said in a meeting with Kuwaiti Amir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jabir al-Sabah at the time.
