Iran, Egypt Can Help Defuse Regional Tensions

A high-ranking diplomat said Tehran and Cairo can work to help ease tensions among regional states and improve the chaotic situation in the Middle East.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, a foreign policy advisor to Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, made the statement in a farewell meeting with the head of Egypt's Interests Section, Khaled Emara, in Tehran on Tuesday. The advisor, who is a former deputy foreign minister for Arab-African affairs, said the Iranian and Egyptian nations have many commonalities that prepare the ground for close relationship and hoped the two countries' efforts to have better cooperation will bear fruit, IRNA reported.
"Parliamentary diplomacy can greatly help deepen mutual understanding about views on regional and international developments and pave the way for more bilateral collaboration," he said, hoping that the parliamentary friendship group between the two countries will be established soon. Emara said increased consultations between the two countries will be of help in strengthening security in the region.
"With the assistance of my Iranian friends, I always tried to help solve problems and bring the countries closer," said Emara, whose mission in Iran ended this year, after three years of service.
Pointing to the huge potential for expansion of bilateral cooperation, Emara looked forward to promotion of parliamentary diplomacy between the two countries.
