Cooperation between Iran and Egypt could create a difficult situation for Israel, said Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Interviewed by an Arab journalist, Fahmi Hoveidi, the President said the consensus between the two countries can accomplish many things in favor of Arabs and Muslims.
“Cooperation between Iran and Egypt could create a difficult situation for the Zionist regime and reaches the region on the verge of a new era that leads everything towards stability.”
Asked about the threat of new sanctions against Iran raised by French Prime Minister, Francois Fillon, he said, “France’s government does not know what it wants to do and the time for threat language is also over.”
Since 30 years ago Iran has been either threatened or sanctioned but despite the pressures it has grown and turned into a regional power, the Iranian students news agency quoted him as saying.
Meanwhile, regarding talks over supply of 20 percent enriched uranium for Tehran’s reactor, he noted Iran can enrich uranium at this level considering its experts capabilities “but it accepted to cooperate with another country in order to make the global community confident.”
Also asked about Persian Gulf countries concern on Iran’s military and nuclear activities, the President stated, western enemies are seeking differences among Iran and the Persian Gulf states according to some Arab officials.
Iran’s hand is extended to Persian Gulf countries, he noted and continued, “they know very well that the “danger” issue is not real and is a western plot.”
