Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak met in Cairo with Iranian Parliament Speaker Gholamali Haddadadel, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported Wednesday.


At the end of the meeting Haddadadel said, "Mubarak stressed that he was not under American pressure regarding the relations between Cairo and Tehran."
