Egyptian trade fair to be held in Iran, first since 1979

CAIRO, Dec 30 (AFP) - An Egyptian trade fair is to be held in Iran in June, the first in 20 years, Egyptian officials said Wednesday.

A variety of Egyptian products will be on display at the fair from June 21-26, the MENA news agency quoted organizer Mohammad Said Saleh as saying.

"Iran is one of the most important Asian markets as well as a transit point for Egyptian products towards the Moslem nations" of Central Asia, he said, adding that the fair would provide an opportunity for Iranian and Egyptian businessmen to discuss joint ventures.

Diplomatic relations between Iran and Egypt were severed in the aftermath of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, but ties have improved over the past year with the exchange of official delegations.

An Egyptian parliamentary delegation flew to Iran this month for the first visit of its kind in 20 years.

Iranian Vice President Massumeh Ebtekar became the highest-ranking Iranian to visit Egypt when she attended an international conference on the ozone layer in Cairo in November.
