CAIRO — Egypt and Iran have signed an agreement to resume direct flights between their capitals for the first time since the two nations' diplomatic relations fell apart in 1979.

The head of the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority, Sameh al-Hafni, said 28 flights will carry travelers between Cairo and Teheran every week.

There was no explanation of what led to the deal, and an Egyptian government spokesman could not be reached for comment.
