Despite the lack of a legal status, the Muslim Brotherhood is keen to talk about its vision for the future of Egypt. Mahmoud Ghozlan reflects this trend with recent remarks on the relationship between Egypt and Iran, ahead of Morsy’s visit to the Non-Aligned Summit

Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan expressed the vision of his organisation regarding President Mohamed Morsy’s upcoming visit to Iran to attend the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Tehran.

Ghozlan stressed that Morsy’s visit to Tehran is an attempt to pressure Iran to stop its support toward Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, who Ghozlan describes as a criminal.

Regarding the prospects of restoring the diplomatic relations between Egypt and Iran, Ghozlantold the Daily News Egypt that it is not acceptable to have any sort of relations with Iran as long as they are still supporting the current Syrian regime.

Ghozlan also dismissed any chances of empowering Egyptian-Iranian economic relations, despite the current uncertainty looming around the Egyptian economy.

“We were looking forward to enhancing our cooperation with Iran, but with the current Iranian stance, it is impossible. Syrian blood is not cheap,” Ghozlan said.

When asked whether President Morsy would be addressing the Syrian issue in his speech during the NAM summit, Ghozlan said he can’t speakon behalf of President Morsy, as there is a presidential office to answer such questions.

“It is just an ordinary procedural summit where Egypt would yield the leadership of NAM to Iran and then Iran would be yielding it to another country in the next summit and so on,”Ghozlan explained.

    According to Mr. Ghozlan’s analogy, I would assume Bahraini Shi’ite blood is cheap!!

    I don’t hear Egyptian government complaining about the plight of Bahrainis!
