Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says the US and Israel seek to obstruct the normalization of ties between Iran and Egypt to save their own interests.

Salehi made the remark in a meeting with an Egyptian delegation in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Wednesday, ISNA reported.

Enemies of the two nations and the US and Israel on top of them will sustain losses if Muslim countries, including Iran and Egypt, foster unity so they do their best to poison the relations between Tehran and Cairo, he further explained.

Salehi pointed out that the interests of the two countries demand that Iran and Egypt move to strengthen unity among Muslim countries and prevent a division among them.

He went on to say that the two countries have fortunately taken important steps toward the normalization of diplomatic ties following the Egyptian revolution.

The Iranian top official said that the Egyptian revolution marked a turning point in international developments and opened a new chapter in regional developments.

Salehi stated that the Islamic Republic considers the recent developments in the region a good omen and added that the developments will finally come to the benefit of regional countries.

This is the second time that a delegation visits Iran following the recent Egyptian revolution.

The first delegation comprised of social, cultural, religious and revolutionary figures visited Iran late May and early June.

Iran and Egypt have expressed readiness to resume ties following the ouster of Egypt's US-backed ruler Hosni Mubarak.

The Islamic Republic and Egypt have not had diplomatic relations since 1980. Iran severed ties with Egypt after Cairo signed the 1978 Camp David Accords with the Israeli regime and offered asylum to Iran's deposed dictator, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
