Minister who objected to Morsi's hush hush meeting with Iran is ousted from government

Minister who objected to Morsi's hush hush meeting with Iran is ousted from government | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Former Egyptian interior minister Ahmed Gamal al-Din was replaced in last week’s Cabinet reshuffle after he objected to a meeting between an advisor to President Mohammed Morsi and a senior commander of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard, according to Egyptian media reports.

Gamal al-Din reportedly complained about the meeting between Morsi’s advisor Issam Haddad andIran’s Qassem Suleimani. The former interior minister was also disappointed about the Brotherhood’s handling of the country’s security issues.

 

The low-profile meeting between the Iranian and Egyptian official focused on intelligence issues, including the development of Egypt’s intelligence agency, the widely circulated al-Masry al-Youm newspaper reported, quoting sources.

Iran’s Suleimani reportedly spoke about his experience in Iran’s security affairs, and the Muslim Brotherhood officials who met with him expressed their desire to learn from the Iranian security experience. (...)

The Muslim Brotherhood has denied such allegations; “Some newspaper and websites have quoted a British newspaper saying that the Muslim Brotherhood asked for secret Iranian support to strengthen their control over the country, and that some leaders met the head of the Iranian Quds Force earlier this year, but this news is fiction and totally untrue,” said the media spokesman for the Brotherhood, Mahmoud Ghozlan.
