The head of Iran’s Interests Section in Egypt, Nasser Kan’ani has cautioned Arab states from falling into a policy trap purportedly promoted by the US and Israel and seeking to sow division between Arab states and Iran.

According to Kan’ani, Israel, in particular, is responsible for dividing Arabs and Iranians for its long-standing hostility towards the Arab world. He also noted that Iran and the Arab world have a long history of social and cultural exchange, and stressed that Iran has been actively supporting regional cooperation with its neighbors.

“The interests of Iran and the Arab world would not be fulfilled with such confrontation”, the Iranian diplomat pointed out.

Four Arab states recently announced the establishment of diplomatic ties with Israel – Bahrain, the UAE, Morocco and Sudan. They join Egypt and Jordan in this capacity, which have long-established ties with Israel.
