According to a Syrian government source, Egypt and Syria are in the process of rapprochement after a three year hiatus that saw both countries immersed in a violent civil war with Islamist groups.

Egypt suspended all diplomatic ties with the government in Damascus after former Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood took office in 2012.

Mohammad Morsi publicly stated his support for the Islamist rebel forces against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), despite the rapid increase of religious extremists inside his own country.

Upon his removal from the presidency, Mohammad Morsi was imprisoned for crimes against the state.

His successor, ‘Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, rejected all Qatari-backed political groups that were operating inside Egypt and forced the journalists from the Qatari family owned “Al-Jazeera” news company to pack up their belongings and leave the country.

Sisi ascension to power may have renewed their alliance with Saudi Arabia, but it also paved the way for Iran to renew their diplomatic talks with Egypt.

Iran is currently working as the intermediary between the two states, as they seek rapprochement for the first time in three years.

Recently, Tunisia reopened their Syrian Embassy after closing down the embassy in 2012.
