Iranian Vice President Hamid Baqai arrived in Cairo Tuesday on a private jet from the Iranian capital Tehran for a two-day visit to Egypt.
During the visit, Baqai will deliver Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy an official invitation from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to attend the Non-Aligned Movement summit to be hosted by Iran on 30-31 August.
Baqai was received by Environment Minister Mostafa Hussein upon arrival at Cairo airport.
Egypt is currently the president of the Non-Aligned Movement but the office will be passed to Tehran in this year's session. 118 countries are members of the organization.
