Iran Reiterates Call for Enhanced Ties with Egypt

Politics - Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Saturday that enhancement of all-out relations with Egypt stands atop Tehran's foreign policy agenda.

Addressing a joint meeting attended by representatives of Department for Political and International Studies of the Iranian Foreign Ministry and Egyptian Al-Ahram Institution in Tehran, Amir Abdollahian pointed out that Iran is fully ready to return the relations between Tehran and Cairo to the normal path.

"Iran is eager to expand friendly relations with the influential and effective country in the region, Egypt, without any preconditions," he added.

The Iranian official also urged both sides' researchers, governmental and non-governmental institutions to do their utmost and utilize all available potentials for closing the two countries.

Iranian and Egyptian officials have repeatedly voiced their interest in the resumption of the two countries' diplomatic relations in the last few years.

In June, Iranian and Egyptian officials stressed the need for utilizing each and every capacity and potential to improve their all-out ties.

In a meeting with Head of Egypt's Interests Section in Iran Khalid al-Saeed Ibrahim Amari, Iranian President’s Chief of Staff Mohammad Nahavandian said the Iranian and Egyptian nations have had historical and cultural ties and enjoy prominent positions in the Muslim world too, and urged relevant officials in both Iran and Egypt to pave the way for promotion of relations.

Amari, for his part, voiced his country's willingness for consolidating Tehran-Cairo ties.
