|Egyptian journalist writes book on new chapter in Iran-Egypt relations||
TEHRAN -- The Egyptian journalist Tariq El Senuti has recently authored a book on the new chapter in cultural and diplomatic relations that started between Iran and Egypt after the 2011 revolution in his country.
Entitled “Iranian Papers… Egyptian Pens”, the book has been published in Cairo last week, Egyptian daily newspaper Youm7 reported.
The news item did not refer to the name of the book’s publisher.
The book has studied the meetings of Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi, and diplomats with some senior Egyptian officials over the past two years.
It also carries the viewpoints of large number of Egyptian journalists and writers, who have visited Iran since 2011.
Several Egyptian delegations have met with prominent Iranian political, economic and religious figures, and also have visited landmarks in the cities of Tehran, Isfahan and Mashhad during their visits to Iran since 2011.
The 2011 Egyptian revolution took place following a popular uprising that began on January 25, 2011. The uprising was mainly a campaign of non-violent civil resistance.
Millions of protesters demanded the overthrow of the regime of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Despite being predominantly peaceful in nature, the revolution was not without violent clashes between security forces and protesters, with at least 846 people killed and 6,000 injured.
On February 11, following weeks of determined popular protest and pressure, Mubarak resigned from office.
