Background: Iranian Foreign Minister Ardeshire Zahedi flow into Cairo on Monday to repay a recent visit to Iran by the U.A.R.'s Mahmoud Riad.
Foreign Minister Riad met Mr Zahedi at Cairo Airport, and escorted his visitor to pay homage at President Nasser's tomb.
Mr Zahedi was due to stay in Egypt for five days, discussing regional issues, bi-lateral matters, and the Arab-Israel conflict.
Egyptian-Iranian relations are now at their closest, with an identity of view both on the Arab-Isareli conflict, and on Iran's policy of not allowing outsiders to intervene in the internal affairs of the Gulf region.
