Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi confirms planned talks with his Egyptian counterpart Nabil al-Arabi on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) meeting in the Indonesian resort island of Bali.

“Iran, Egypt and Cuba are currently troika members of the Non-Aligned Movement. Foreign ministers of the three countries are scheduled to hold talks on activities of the NAM during its foreign ministerial meeting in Bali,” Fars news agency quoted Salehi as saying on Sunday.

He added that he would raise issues pertaining to the NAM and Tehran-Cairo relations in his talks with the Egyptian foreign minister during the upcoming meeting.

The NAM foreign ministers are expected to hold a meeting in the island of Bali in late May.

On April 27, al-Arabi said the NAM meeting provided Tehran and Cairo with a good opportunity to discuss the development and normalization of mutual ties.

The Egyptian minister added that the establishment of close ties between the two sides will pose no threat to the interests of Arab nations.

Following the ouster of its pro-Western President Hosni Mubarak, the post-revolution Egypt looks poised to open a new page in its relations with the Islamic Republic.

Iran severed ties with Egypt after Cairo signed the 1978 Camp David Accords with the Israeli regime and offered asylum to Iran's deposed monarch Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi.
