TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior member of the Egyptian al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun (Muslim
Brotherhood) party said the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia are pressuring Cairo
into giving up resumption of ties with Iran.

Speaking to FNA, former spokesman of Muslim Brotherhood Kamal al-Halbawi
called on Iran and Egypt "to take the necessary steps" to get rid of such
problems and hurdles placed by their opponents to impede resumption of their
ties.

He reminded the friendly and age-old relations between Iranian and Egyptian
nations, and called for faster diplomatic activities between the two sides.

"The Egyptian nation supports and welcomes Iran's anti-Zionist stance
because the two nations view formation of the Zionist regime on the
Palestinian territories as a brutal act and against the interests of the
regional nations and Muslims," Halbawi noted.

"Both nations underline the necessity for Muslim nations to maintain
solidarity and unity to annihilate this cancerous tumor (Israel)," he
reiterated.

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 Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi
officially invited the then Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Al-Arabi to pay
a visit to Tehran.

The Iranian foreign minister and his former Egyptian counterpart also held a
meeting in Bali, Indonesia in Spring.

During the meeting which took place on the sidelines of a ministerial
meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the two diplomats conferred on
ways to promote the bilateral relations between Tehran and Cairo, and
stressed the need for continued consultations in this regard.

Al-Arabi had earlier announced that Cairo would soon open a new page with
Iran.

Al-Arabi who was replaced with Mohamed El-Orabi became the next Arab League
Secretary to replace Amr Mussa .
