Egypt's president invited to Iran, discusses Syria
Iran's foreign minister on Thursday invited Egypt's president to visit Tehran again, a sign of improved relations between the two nations since an Islamist government took over in Cairo.


Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi discussed the Syria crisis with President Mohamed Morsi, who has launched a four-nation initiative to end the civil war. "Egypt is an acceptable partner for all involved," Salehi said at a news conference with Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Amr Kamel. "We hope from our heart that countries in the region unite to find a Syrian-Syrian solution and prevent any foreign intervention." (AP)
