‘Islamic Awakening’: Morsi’s Egypt turns to Iran — report | RT

Newly-elected Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will rekindle dormant ties between Egypt and Iran and re-consider his country’s peace accord with Israel, according to a controversial interview with an Iranian news agency.

Tehran’s Fars news agency distributed a set of quotes from an interview taken hours before Morsi was proclaimed victor in the presidential poll after a prolonged vote count.

The views expressed by Morsi contradict his official stance that he will adhere to Egypt’s international obligations. Instead, he reportedly promises to radically adjust the country’s international role.

A day after the interview was published, Morsi’s spokesman denied that it ever took place.
