Member of the dissolved parliament Amr Hamzawy praised Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi's attack on the Syrian regime and his support for the 17-month-old anti-Bashar al-Assad revolt on Thursday.
Egypt's newly-elected Islamist president visited Tehran on Thursday in the first visit of an Egyptian leader to Iran since its 1979 Islamic revolution where he condemned the Syrian regime.
Mursi insisted that Assad's "dictatorship" has lost its legitimacy and expressed his support for the Syrian people's demand for freedom and justice.
On Twitter, the liberal political analyst insisted that exerting pressure on the Syrian regime and its supports is crucial.
Hamzawy stressed however on the importance of controlling ties with Iran as it is a country not known for its respect for freedoms and human rights.
