Visiting Iran's former chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani said here on Sunday that his country has the willingness to cooperate with Egypt in the field of nuclear technology, Egypt's official MENA news agency reported.
Speaking at a press conference held at the Egyptian Press Syndicate, Larijani said that Iran is fully ready if asked to cooperate with Egypt on nuclear technology.
The cooperation with Egypt would "come through the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and under its supervision," Larijani said.
Larijani, an adviser to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also said his country is willing to cooperate with Egypt and all other Arab countries to reach security and stability throughout the Arab world, especially in Iraq and Lebanon.
Tehran seeks normal relations with all Arab countries to build "a structure established on the pillars of openness and frankness," Larijani was quoted as saying.
Larijani, who resigned as the top Iranian nuclear negotiator in October, arrived in Cairo on Monday on a private visit to Egypt with his family.
Bilateral relations between Egypt and Iran have witnessed gradual improvement in recent years since Iran cut their ties in 1980 in protest against Egypt's recognition of Israel.
