Larijani Iran is proud

December 21, 2009 10:33

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Sunday defended his country's support for Hamas, during a high-profile visit to Cairo. Larijani told Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak that Teheran is proud of its "moral" support for Hamas. He also denied that Iran is undermining Egypt's efforts to reconcile between Hamas and Fatah. The two men met for nearly two hours on Sunday. Such meetings have been rare since the countries severed diplomatic ties in 1979. Although Iran has been looking to improve relations, Egypt accuses Teheran of meddling in Arab conflicts, and has urged the Islamic republic to end its support for Hamas.
