Egypt and Syria make nice

From People's Daily Online:
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad voiced readiness to work with Egypt to maintain cooperation relations between the two countries, Syria's official SANA news agency reported Thursday.

In a message sent to head of the Supreme Council of Egypt's armed forces, Field Marshal Mohammed Hussein Tantawi, Assad expressed his hopes that Egypt would restore its normal role in the common Arab work, expressing Syria's readiness to consult and closely cooperate with Egypt in all fields.

The message, SANA said, came in reply to that sent by Tantawi to Assad, in which Tantawi has confirmed the solid relations between the two countries and the imperative to open a new page based on the well-known, aspired-for firm principles.
With all this goodwill, it is probably only a matter of time before Iran offers to build uranium-enrichment facilities in Egypt...
