Egypt views potential deal as a step towards regional stability

Egypt is closely monitoring the nuclear framework agreement announced with Iran.  Cairo says it hopes a finalized agreement helps achieve regional stability - and prevents an arms race. CCTV's Yasser Hakim filed this report from Cairo.

Highlights:

  • The Egyptian Iranian rift dates back to the Khomeini revolution in the 1970’s when ousted Shah Pahlavi took refuge in Egypt.
  • Relations worsened as chaos reigned in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and now Iran’s support to the Houthis in Yemen.
