Praising the Egyptian revolution as an original and regionally influential one, the Majlis Speaker said "The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported the public movement of the people of Egypt. The Iranian nation stands side by side the people of Egypt.”
"In order to continue its rule over Islamic countries, colonialism is trying to enter with a new veil,” he maintained, "contributing to religious conflict in the Islamic world is a colonial scheme with the aim to secure the Zionist regime.”
Larijani added "There is no principal disagreement among various Islamic sects. The colonialist are attempting to make tactical use of radical terrorist groups in order to secure their rule over the Islamic world.”
Followingly, some figures among the Egyptians present in the meeting addressed mutual concerns.
Salah al-Din al-Dussouqi said that friendly relationships between the two countries can alter regional equations.
"Zionism and American colonialism try to tear the region apart through religious clash. The two countries of Iran and Egypt must stand shoulder to shoulder against the Zionist onslaught,” he demanded.
Nour al-Huda, Egyptian journalist, also said "The enemies of Iran are the enemies of Egypt as well. Those who assassinated Iranian scientists assassinate Egyptian scientists as well.”
