Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi arrived in Cairo today, becoming the highest-ranking Iranian official to visit Egypt since Mohamed Morsi came to power. Salehi is expected to discuss bilateral relations and the Syrian crisis with President Morsi and Egyptian Foreign Minister Kamal Amr.
Iran and Egypt still do not have full diplomatic relationship and Iran is represented in Cairo by an interest section. The two countries also strongly oppose each other’s policy on Syria.
