Egypt's Moussa Talks of Mending Iran Ties

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times at his office in Cairo, the 74-year-old former secretary general of the Arab League and presidential candidate said that he would want to hold talks and possibly re-establish relations with Iran after election.

Iran severed ties with Egypt after Cairo signed the 1978 Camp David Accords with the Israeli regime and offered asylum to Iran's deposed monarch, Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi.

In an interview published in The Washington Post in early May, Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Al-Arabi said Egypt is looking to improve relations with most countries in the world, including Iran.

In April, Head of Egypt's ruling military council, Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, lauded Iran's excellent position in the Islamic world, and expressed hope that Tehran-Cairo relations would increase.

"We hope that the upcoming stage would be a stage of special bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran, serving the best of both countries," he told Der Spiegel.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has also reiterated the resolve of Iran and Egypt to re-establish relations following the ouster of Hosni Mubarak.

“The two countries have expressed their explicit willingness and interest to resume ties,” Salehi said.

Salehi added that Iranian and Egyptian officials are holding talks to open a new page in their bilateral relations.

Meanwhile, the Tel Aviv regime has expressed 'fear' and disappointment at Egypt's efforts to re-establish ties with Iran.
