Iran's FM to visit Cairo
IRAN: Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi will visit Egypt on
January 9 for a two-day trip aimed at discussing the Syria crisis and
Tehran-Cairo bilateral talks, media reports said on Saturday.
Salehi will meet his counterpart Mohammed Kamel Amr and President
Mohamed Morsi during his stay in Cairo, said Mojtaba Amani, the head of
Tehran's interests section in the Egyptian capital, according to the
ISNA news agency.
Egypt's official MENA news agency, quoting Amr who is on a visit to
Riyadh, said Salehi's visit was taking place in the context of "reviving
the initiative of President Mohamed Morsi as per the contact group on
Syria." Salehi was in Cairo in mid-September for a meeting of the
contact group on conflict-stricken Syria.
