Iran appointed its first ambassador to Egypt in over thirty years, Iranian TV network PressTV reported Monday. According to the report, the appointment comes amid a thawing of relations between the two countries, which were unfriendly since the Iranian revolution in 1979.

The appointment of the new ambassador to Egypt by Iran reportedly came after negotiations between Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and his Egyptian counterpart Nabil al-Arabi.
