Iran, Egypt Rapprochement

“Egypt and Iran will hold talks at the ministerial level with the aim of renewing full diplomatic relations that have been frozen since 1980, the Egyptian foreign ministry said Tuesday. The announcement came as international tensions were running high over Iran’s nuclear drive, with warnings by France that the world should be ready for a war over the crisis… Iran and Egypt currently only have interests sections in their respective countries after Iran cut ties in 1980 following the Islamic revolution in protest at Cairo’s recognition of Israel and hosting of the deposed shah.” (AFP)
