In addition to the two countries willing to improve relations, some governments are trying to enhance ties between Iran and Egypt.


“We have always welcomed the development of relations between Tehran and Cairo… We hope to see new and reciprocal measures with the friendly and brotherly country of Egypt, which we prioritize in our foreign policy.” Abdollahian commented.


Dr. Maleki, a member of the National Security Commission of Iran’s Parliament, also stated in this regard: “Soon, we will witness the opening of embassies in Iran and Egypt, and after this move, a meeting will be arranged between the president of Iran, Mr. Raisi, and Egyptian President El-Sisi.”


Iran and Egypt are two countries with rich histories and cultures that are located in different regions of the world.


Despite being located in different regions, Iran and Egypt share some similarities in terms of their historical and cultural backgrounds. Both countries have a rich history dating back thousands of years, and both have been centers of civilization and culture in their respective regions.


However, Iran and Egypt have had a complex relationship over the years. While both countries are predominantly Muslim, they have different interpretations of Islam and have different political ideologies. The relationship between Iran and Egypt has been strained at times, particularly since the Iranian Revolution in 1979, when Iran became an Islamic republic. Egypt has been critical of Iran’s political and ideological positions, and the two countries have had limited diplomatic relations since then.
