download-3A senior Egyptian politician underscored his country's important role in the region, and called on the new Gov't in Cairo to end Egypt's strategic partnership with Washington, underlining that relations with the US have had no benefit for Egypt. 

He also advised the government of President Mohammad Mursi to stretch new horizons for the expansion of cooperation with independent states and those countries which are not under the US hegemony.

In relevant remarks last month, the Egyptian lawmaker also urged Cairo to strengthen ties with Arab and Islamic states in a bid to establish a front against the Zionists' plots.

Al-Shahabi called on Mursi's government to end Egypt's dependence on the US and form a diverse foreign policy and establish stronger ties with emerging powers and Islamic states.

"We advocate diversity in foreign policy and tendency towards the East, China, India and Brazil with our emphasis specially laid on the development of ties with Iran, Turkey, Damascus, Riyadh, Indonesia and all Islamic states," Shahabi said.

"We want the creation of an Arab-Islamic axis, an axis with the capability to confront the plots hatched by the Zionists against the Arab and Islamic world."

His remarks came after Mursi said Iran plays an important role in resolving the regional crises, and underlined that Tehran and Cairo should be united in dealing with global challenges.

"When the follower of unrighteousness are united in their unrighteous path, why should not we go united in our right position when dealing with global challenges," Mursi said in a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi in Cairo in September.

Stressing that Egypt assumes Iran's stability as its own stability, he said, "There is no problem between Iran and Egypt."

The Egyptian president also underscored the important role of Iran's assistance to the settlement of problems in the region, and announced Cairo's readiness for any kind of regional cooperation with Tehran.

After the collapse of Hosni Mubarak's regime, the Iranian and Egyptian officials voiced their interest in the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
