“During their meeting, Morsi addressed the ongoing crisis in Syria. ‘The problems in Syria can only be resolved through the mediation of such influential countries in the region as Iran… Egypt views Iran as its strategic partner and we believe that everyone should see to it that the proper conditions for developments in the region exist.’ Ahmadinejad, on his part, said that the “region’s nations must solve the region’s problems themselves. Iran and Egypt have a key role in securing such a solution.’”
“President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Cairo on Tuesday for the first visit by an Iranian leader in more than three decades, marking a historic departure from years of frigid ties between the two regional heavyweights… President Mohammed Morsi gave Ahmadinejad a red-carpet welcome on the tarmac at Cairo airport, shaking the Iranian’s hand and exchanging a kiss on each cheek as a military honour guard stood at attention. The two leaders then held a 20-minute talk that focused on the civil war in Syria”.
“Egypt on Sunday defended its idea of forming a regional contact group on Syria which would include Iran, a staunch Damascus ally, insisting that Tehran could “be part of the solution” to the Syrian crisis. ‘Solving the problem demands inviting all parties active in the region,” he said, noting that Tehran was an “influential partner” of Damascus.”
‘”Egypt is the cornerstone of the region and has a special stature in the Arab and Muslim countries… and we want relations of friendship and brotherhood with it,” Salehi said, adding that Tehran hoped to restore “normal” ties with Cairo.’”
“International politics positions of the two countries also coincided a lot, as the leaders “thoroughly considered a number of acute international problems,” Putin said, and found common ground on the issues of international politics, particularly the hair-trigger situation in the Middle East, and especially emphasized the civil war in Syria.“The presidents agreed that diplomacy is the only solution to the Syrian crisis and that foreign intervention into Syria is unacceptable. ‘There should be a political and legal solution of the Syrian crisis without external meddling. We are for an early ceasefire to start intra-Syrian negotiations,” Putin said, stressing that Moscow’s and Cairo’s “positions are close.”“Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov told the media after the talks that “The Egyptian president voiced very new, fresh and interesting ideas,” on the Syrian crisis settlement. At the end of the talks, Morsi invited Putin to pay a return visit to Egypt…”
This–coupled with Morsi’s polite refusal of the many-strings-attached loan offer from the IMF ~ sealed his fate as far as Israel and America were concerned.
If Egypt were to fall out of the American sphere of influence and fall into the good graces of Iran and Russia and in the process declare its independence from Zionist money, political influence and social intrigue, it would offer Iran and Russia a base of operations for undoing the entire sordid business in the Arab Middle East where America and Israel keep the various nations there unhinged, confused and off-balance.
