TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's visit to Iran last month is still stirring debate in the Iranian parliament.
Lawmaker Ali Mohammad Bozorgvari lashed out at Morsi for failing to meet with the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei during the August visit.
Morsi attended the meeting of nonaligned countries in Tehran but stayed in Iran only for a few hours.
Bozorgvari told lawmakers on Sunday that Morsi met the Saudi king, whom he called "dirty and American" during a Muslim leaders summit in Saudi Arabia earlier in August but didn't meet Khamenei when in Iran.
Morsi's Iran visit was the first by an Egyptian president in decades. In a speech in Tehran, he attacked Iran s key ally, Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime and called it "oppressive."
