Shy advancement of Cairo and Tehran in relationships l Ahmadinejad arrived in Egypt in the first visit by an Iranian president since 1979


The airport in Cairo on Tuesday witnessed a historic landing Ski to door Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi , has welcomed his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad . After the ceremonial kiss, walked down the red carpet in a visit, the first by an Iranian head of state in 34 years , seeking the complicated thawing of relations between two heavyweights in the Middle East. "I will try to pave the way for the development of cooperation between Iran and Egypt," said Ahmadinejad told reporters before undertaking journey.The man who confessed yesterday his dream of becoming the first Iranian in space will participate in Cairo tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday in the summit of the Organization for Islamic Cooperationand take the opportunity to meet with the Egyptian authorities. One of his first stops will be a meeting with the Grand Imam of Al Azhar, Ahmed el tayed. The unity of the Muslim world focus conversation. The ties between the republic of the ayatollahs and the land of the Pharaohs are in theater since 1979. That year the nascent Islamic revolution froze relations after the signing of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. And since then, fears have undermined the dialogue between Sunni Egypt and Shi'ite Iran. The Shah of Iran Mohammad Reza Pahlavdi was buried in Cairo where he consumed his last days under the protection of then President Anwar Sadat, who died in October 1981 at the hands of a soldier Islamist. The murderer, Khaled Islambuli, was considered a martyr in Tehran, where even dedicated a street. His successor, Hosni Mubarak, a close ally of the West and Saudi Arabia, Iran and always considered his crusade uranium enrichment program one threat and was relentless with Egyptian Shi'a minority, which was even accused of serving the interests destabilizing Tehran. The revolution that overthrew the dictator two years ago and clinched the Muslim Brotherhood power generated excessive enthusiasm in the Iranian elite. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei gave his blessing when referring to the uprising as the " Islamic awakening."

Pitfalls for the thaw

In a sign of the times, Mohamed Mursi last August traveled to Tehran to participate in the Summit of the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries. But, despite Iranian propaganda, the 'rais' Egyptian script and verbalized came loud and clear one of the pitfalls that sour relations: the Syrian beehive. To the chagrin of Iran, the main backer of Bashar Assad, the Islamist stressed that support for the rebels was "a moral duty" and insisted that the "oppressive regime had lost all legitimacy." In that speech, deliberately obviated Mursi Bahrain, a Shiite majority Sunni monarchy where the uprisings are crushed with the complicity of neighboring countries in the Persian Gulf. On Tuesday, after the welcoming ceremony, Mursi and Ahmadinejad briefly discussed ways to resolve the nearly two years of conflict in Syria without resorting to "military intervention". But are the international alliances Egypt -United States and Israel or Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, and its financial dependence on these countries in a delicate economic time holding back the minimum momentum in relations with the ayatollahs. In domestic politics, the Salafist -Brotherhood partners against Islamist bloc not applaud either flirting and require the protection of the Sunnis. Even so, Tehran is determined to seek foreign policy platitudes or emphasizing religious or cultural roots. "political geography of the region will change if Iran and Egypt achieved a unified opposition in the Palestinian issue," Ahmadinejad pointed out, who even hinted his desire to use the trip to travel to the Gaza Strip. "If I may, I will go to Gaza to visit his people," has confessed without specifying who should give 'green light'. "My desire is greater than this. want to pray in Jerusalem for total liberation, "he added with his usual rhetoric against the Israeli enemy. And, if full relations are still unreachable, the second point of mutual interest would be focused on expanding trade and economic relations.Shortly after the triumph of the riots, Iran called on the Egyptian government permission for warships cruzasen the Suez Canal . Cairo plácet granted on condition that the ships not transportasen "military equipment, nuclear or chemical." Some signs of progress towards normalization shy that are light years ahead of putting Iran in a privileged place on the international agenda.This week, the Egyptian Foreign Minister, Mohamed Kamel Amr, stressed that the development of relations between the two nations will depend on the circumstances of a region on fire . And never will repair the power-stressed-at the expense of security of the countries of the Persian Gulf.
