Iran and Egypt to Resume Diplomatic Relations

The Iranian foreign ministry confirmed earlier reports that Iran and Egypt are preparing to resume diplomatic relations and exchange ambassadors after 30 years of hostile relations. The move would be a tangible sign of Iran’s growing influence in the Arab world in the aftermath of popular revolts in the region. Egypt's new foreign minister, Nabeel al-Arabi, has said the new regime is willing to "turn a page" in relations with Tehran.

Rapprochement with the Islamic Republic of Iran is actually a litmus test of popular accountability for any new Arab regime emerging from the Arab Spring.

Acceptance of the occupation of Palestine, on the other hand, is a sure sign of continued Western domination of the state's foreign policy.
