Tehran, Dec 12, IRNA – Head of Egypt Interest Section in Tehran Khaled
Amareh said on Sunday that mutual understanding and dialogue between Iranian
and Egyptian officials are in the shaping and the two countries' endeavors
for further expansion of relations are going ahead on the right track.
Speaking to IRNA, Amareh said in a short span of time after downfall of the
Hosni Mubarak regime, good ties have been established between Iran and Egypt
and the two sides have strong determination for further expansion of
relations in different fields.
He stressed that of course, as two big regional powers, Iran and Egypt
deserve to have the highest level of relations in all fields. "Undoubtedly,
in the future, the two countries will have very good relations at bilateral,
regional and international levels."
Saying that his country has been witnessing the first ever constitutional
reforms, the diplomat said since Egypt has been for years under the yoke of
dictatorial governments, it is natural for Egypt to be highly sensitive to
any kind of change and development under present conditions.
He said recent developments in Egypt and the ruling by President Mohamed
Morsi which gave him more authorities, made Egyptians more sensitive based
on the idea that the new president might follow his predecessors and
Having observed wide-scale opposition to his ruling, Morsi withdrew his
ruling so that more space and time would be provided for more comprehensive
dialogue with the opposition and different political groups.
He said certain political groups in Egypt believe that new constitution has
some flaws and certain clauses need to be amended.
He said the time is now ripe for dialogue between different political
parties and the government to patch out possible differences.
