Speaking to Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on the sidelines of the meeting of the Quartet Committee on Syria on Tuesday, Morsi noted that when people who follow wrong goals are united for achieving their goals, why Muslims should not be united in facing global challenges.
The Egyptian president expressed his gratitude for Tehran’s successful hosting of the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit saying that Iran and Egypt are two great countries with historical civilizations and “there is no problem” between them.
Salehi, for his part, thanked Morsi for his presence at the NAM summit and congratulated the victory of the popular and democratic revolution of Egypt.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran respects the will of the Egyptian people to determine their destiny and the people of Egypt have proved that the time for engineering [developments of the] region … by hegemonic powers is over,” he said.
Iran’s foreign minister welcomed the establishment of the Quartet group which can play a constructive role in regional issues, especially in Syria.
