    The first visit by an Iranian leader to Egypt in more than 30 years seems to confirm a thaw in relations after the election of President Mohammed Morsi in Cairo.

    Morsi went to Iran last August, the first Egyptian head of state to set foot in Tehran in more than three decades. Mubarak before him, a staunch ally of the US, stood against Iran all that time.
