Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Wednesday that Iran still has not decided whether to attend the upcoming summit on Iraq in Egypt. Iraqi foreign minister Hoshyar Zebari had come to Teheran Wednesday with "clarifications" for Iran about the May 3-4 conference in Egypt's Sharm el-Sheik resort. "We will study them, and we will announce our opinion on the conference soon," Mottaki said at a press conference alongside Zebari. "We support the Iraqi people and the Iraq government," Mottaki said, adding that Iran's participation in a February conference in Baghdad was "evidence of Iran's desire to help bring security and stability to this brother nation."
