President Barack Obama overthrew Hosni Mubarak’s regime and replaced it with the Muslim Brotherhood. Mubarak had made an alliance with the U.S. when he was in power, but now the new Egyptian government, led by Islamic jihadists, is seeking an alliance with Iran to fight the US if necessary.
RIA Novosti reports that, “Iran invited Egypt’s new President Mohamed Morsi on Thursday to attend the next Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in the Iranian capital, Tehran, Press TV reported.”
The 16th annual summit would be held in Tehran on August 26-31.
According to RIA Novosti, “Iran broke off ties with Egypt after Cairo signed the 1978 Camp David Accords and offered asylum to Iran’s deposed monarch Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.”
Iran will receive the NAM’s rotating presidency for three years at the summit.
