TEHRAN – An Egyptian parliamentary delegation, who arrived in Tehran on Thursday, held talks with Ali Akbar Velayati, the secretary general of the World Assembly of the Islamic Awakening.

MP Atef Abdul al-Moghavari, a member of the Egyptian delegation, said Cairo needs to consolidate relations with Tehran as a powerful country in the Middle East.
Commenting on the Islamic Awakening movement in the region, the Egyptian MP said that the Islamic Republic of Iran has always had a prominent role in the development of the movement in the region.
Egypt hopes that the Islamic Republic will share its experience on various areas and promote parliamentary cooperation with Egypt, he stated.
Iran can play influential role in guarding revolutions
During the meeting, Egyptian MP Mahmoud Suleiman said that Tehran can have an influential role in guarding the revolutions occurring in the region.
Commenting on Iran’s capability to campaign against the arrogant powers with reliance on the Supreme Leader’s support, Suleiman said that Iran can help guard the revolutions.
Velayati, who is a senior advisor to Iran’s Supreme Leader, said that no room has been left for the United States and its allies to flex their muscles in the region, adding that the U.S. is no longer courageous to invade a country in the region.
The Egyptian delegation arrived in Tehran on Thursday to hold talks with a number of Iranian officials on various issues including the latest developments in the world and the region.
Most members of the delegation were prisoners during the rule of President Hosni Mubarak.
