Egyptian professor urges regional cooperation

December 24, 2007

Egyptian writer and professor of philosophy Hassan Hanafi has called for additional cooperation between Iran, Egypt, and the PGCC.

Greater cooperation between Iran, Egypt, and the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council will have a positive impact on all Muslim countries, said Hanafi in an interview with IRNA.
Hanafi, considered to be a leading authority on modern Islam, stated that Iran and Egypt are two important regional countries that share history, civilization, and interests as well as common threats.
He also said that establishing balance in the region can help guarantee the economic and political interests of all regional states.
Controversial issues such as dividing the region into Sunni and Shia regions have always been brought up by the West with the aim of sowing division among neighbors.
