New Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi will visit Iran next month.

Morsi will be attending the conference of the Non-Aligned Movement, a group of states that do not consider themselves allied or opposed to any major international powers, according to the Times of Israel.

Morsi became chairman of the movement automatically upon becoming Egyptian president, but will hand the chairmanship to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the meeting.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said he hopes the visit will strengthen relations between Iran and Egypt, according to the Times of Israel. Morsi is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist party.
