Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr has described relations between Tehran and Cairo as "strategic", Mehr quoted Al-Youm Al-Sabe'a website as reporting.
"Egypt's relations with Iran are strategic, and what is important to us in this regard is Egypt's interests. Egypt's relations with Iran or any other country have nothing to do with another country, and it is our interest that determines the form of relationship," Amr said on Tuesday, according to a translation of his comments.
"Exchange of views between Iran and Egypt on the region and the world continues, particularly given that Iran will assume the presidency of the Non-Aligned Movement after Egypt," he stated.
On the situation in Syria, the Egyptian foreign minister said that Cairo has adopted a clear stance toward the developments taking place in this Arab country and is opposed to foreign intervention in Syria's internal affairs.
