Iraq, Oman mediating to restore Iran-Egypt ties: Report

Iraq and Oman have been meditating to restore relations between Iran and Egypt, Iraqi media outlets reported on Wednesday.

A diplomatic source in Cairo has stated that although Egypt welcomes this mediation, especially the Iraqi mediation, as Egypt and Iraq have special relations, Egypt is observing the developments in the region, Almaalomah News reported.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry has announced that Tehran welcomes any positive development or progress that would strengthen the relations between Iran and Egypt.
