The Egyptian hosts of US President Barack Obama's upcoming Cairo speech invited Iran's top diplomat here to attend, an Iranian diplomat said Wednesday. Including the Iranian in the list of guests to Obama's highly anticipated speech to the Muslim World is significant as Teheran and Washington do not have diplomatic ties and officials from both countries usually avoid direct encounters. The Iranians, however, would not say whether they would be attending Obama's address to the Muslim world Thursday at Cairo University. "A decision to attend is currently being made by the Foreign Ministry in Teheran," Aboul Qassim Zakeri, an Iranian official in Cairo, told the Associated Press.
