Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi held talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on Tuesday, September 18, in Cairo, where they addressed Egyptian-Iranian bilateral relations as well as various regional issues including the Syrian crisis.
The meeting was attended by Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel.
Iran is part of the four-member “contact group” initiative to solve the Syrian issue; the initiative was called for by President Morsi and it includes Egypt, Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, though Saudi representatives missed Monday’s meeting in Cairo.
Iran is a strong supporter of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, while Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia demand that the Syrian regime step down.
