Local Editor
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad welcome the Egyptian experts delegation in Tehran; June 1, 2012Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad underlined Tehran's preparedness to assist Egyptians in their move towards progress, and stressed that close ties and unity of Iran and Egypt can easily end the Zionists and enemies' domination over the region, Iranian Fars news agency reported.
"If Iran and Egypt stand beside each other, there won't be any more need for war to root out enemies and Zionists' domination," President Ahmadinejad said at a meeting with a group of families of Egyptian martyrs in Tehran on Saturday.

"Only, the news of unity between Iran and Egypt will make timorous and coward Zionists prefer to escape rather than to stay in the region," Ahmadinejad noted.

He voiced Iran's support for Egypt's progress, and noted, "The Iranian nation is ready to put on the table whatever it has for the sake of Egypt's progress since it considers Egypt's progress as its own progress and progress of all free and independent nations …"
Supreme Leader's Advisor for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati In relevant remarks, Supreme Leader's Advisor for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati stressed Iran's willingness to establish friendly ties with Egypt once the country's new president ascends to power.
"Iran is fully prepared to establish maximum friendship and have utmost intimacy with the new Egyptian government," Velayati said earlier this month.
"We are optimistic about the future of the two countries given the developments in Egypt," Velayati stated.
Velayati further said that Tehran and Cairo's differences are not fundamental, and stressed that resumption of ties between the two nations should take place as a result of their own resolve and should not depend on any third party.
Since the collapse of Hosni Mubarak's regime, the Iranian and Egyptian officials have repeatedly voiced their interest in the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The two capitals are apparently just waiting for the new Egyptian president and government to hold power in the Muslim African nation to start official rapprochement.
