Interaction With EgyptInteraction With Egypt

The head of Iran’s interest section in Cairo says Iran does not support any specific political group or individual in Egypt and will have “interaction with any government which is elected by the people.” Mohammad Mahmoudian also denied reports that Iran is trying to promote its religious beliefs in the region and said such claims are aimed at undermining Iran’s relations with the countries in the region, citing a large number of Sunni people who live in Iran and have not converted to Shiism, ISNA reported. The envoy had also said on Thursday that Tehran is keen to cooperate with Cairo, adding “minor differences” should not block establishment of bilateral relations.
