Egypt's Minister of Civil Aviation Ahmed Shafiq and Iranian Vice President and Head of Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization Hamid Baghaei oversaw the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the two country's aviation officials on Sunday.

Egypt says the MoU will replace the one signed between the two countries in 1976 and is in line with developments in air transportation, AFP reported.

The agreement provides for 28 flights between Cairo and Tehran per week, but does not specify when flights will resume.

According to Fars News Agency, the Iranian delegation arrived in the Egyptian capital of Cairo on Saturday.

Diplomatic relations between Tehran and Cairo have been severed since 1980 in the wake of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and Egypt's recognition of the Israeli regime.

Since then, the two countries have maintained only interest sections in each other's capitals.
