Al-Azhar Grand Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb will meet with Iranís foreign minister
in Cairo on Thursday afternoon.

State-run news agency MENA reported Tuesday that Tayyeb and Iranian Foreign
Minister Ali Akbar Salehi would review the latest developments in the Arab
and Islamic arenas, and what Al-Azhar could possibly do to help achieve
national reconciliation in Egypt.

Iran and Egypt severed ties after Iranís Islamic Revolution in 1979, due to
the Egyptian governmentís support for the overthrown Shah and its peace
agreement with Israel. Both nations have long vied for power in the Middle
East. Egypt has been allied with the US and Israel for decades, but since
the ouster of former President Hosni Mubarak relations between Cairo and
Tehran have warmed.

President Mohamed Morsy's visit to Iran in August was the first by an
Egyptian president since the Iranian revolution.
