Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Cairo on Tuesday, marking the first visit to Egypt by an Iranian president since Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution, Egyptian television footage showed.

Egypt's Islamist President Mohamed Morsi welcomed Ahmadinejad at Cairo airport as he disembarked from the plane, the footage showed.

Ahmadinejad, who is on a three-day visit, will attend an Organisation of Islamic Cooperation conference in Cairo and will hold talks with Egyptian officials, Iranian media said ahead of the trip.

Egypt's crucial time
Does the government have time for entertaining at our crucial time in history! I think not! Ahmadinejad is on his way out of office, so not sure what sort of political alliance is possible!

If not for attending the conference, it certainly is a bad omen for a strife torn Egypt.
