Egypt is opposed to any military action against Iran and is working on normalizing its own relations with the Islamic Republic after 28 years of frozen ties, the foreign minister said Wednesday. Ahmed Aboul Gheit's remarks come amid rising US ire over Iran's nuclear program and a day after a senior Iranian delegation held a series of meetings in Egypt. "Egypt absolutely does not agree with solving the Iranian nuclear issue by force or any military action," Aboul Gheit said, adding, "Egypt supports peaceful settlement for this issue through negotiations which guarantee the Iranian right to a peaceful nuclear program."
