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 strained since just after the Iranian revolution in 1979.
The new ambassador’s appointment reportedly came after negotiations between Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and his Egyptian counterpart Nabil al-Arabi.
Relations between the two countries became strained after the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran when Iran cut ties with Egypt. Iran’s move at the time was based on Egypt’s participation in the 1978 Camp David Accords, and remained cold throughout the 1980s due to Egyptian support for Iraq in the Iran-Iraq War.
Gee, I wonder if this meant anything……
Naaaaaah, that was a whole two weeks ago.
An eternity in the git-r-done this second world we’re living in now. I may as well have never posted the silly notion that Egypt and Iran would be holding’ hands, pickin’ daisies and skippin’ down the lane whistlin’ the theme to The Muslim Brotherhood’s TV show called ‘Tally-Ho Snackbar’.
Thirty years and on the ledge…. learning
All the things you planned
Thirty years in bed.

Iran declined to confirm a news report on Tuesday that it had appointed an ambassador to Egypt, which would mark the restoration of diplomatic relations after more than 30 years.
“The news regarding the appointment of an ambassador is guesswork and is hasty,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said at his weekly news conference.
Then why was it reported by state television that a guy named for the peace-loving ‘splodey-dope cry before goin’ all ‘splodey is the new ambassador to Egypt ?
The website of Iran’s Press TV reported on Monday that Tehran had already appointed its envoy, naming him as Ali Akbar Sibuyeh, a career diplomat who is the son of a senior cleric.
Taqiya, nothing more, nothing less.
Israel and Jews had better be ready for World War IV.
