Egypt and Iran to resume diplomatic relations

We all knew this was coming...
Somehow you just knew this was coming: Iran and Egypt are resuming diplomatic relations (Hat Tip: IMRA).
Iran on Wednesday received well a recent proposal by Egypt's newly appointed Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi for the promotion of the bilateral ties between the two sides, and said it is ready to resume relations with Cairo.

"There have been many ups and downs in the two countries' relations and we hope that under the new conditions we will witness further expansion of relations between the two great nations," Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said.

He also underlined that there is no doubt that good ties between the two countries would help restore stability, security and development to the entire region.

Salehi said that the Egyptian people strived to materialize their justice seeking moves which was regarded as a new chapter in the country's history.

"We would like to once again congratulate them on the occasion," he concluded.

Al-Arabi in his first press conference on Tuesday announced Cairo's preparedness to open "a new page with Iran".

Hey Barack, how's that change working out? Aren't you glad you got rid of Mubarak?
