Egypt has agreed to let two Iranian naval vessels transit the Suez Canal, a move that comes despite expressions of concern by Israeli officials, the Egyptian-government's MENA news agency reported Friday.

An Iranian diplomat has said the vessels were heading to Syria for training and that the request to move through the canal is in line with international regulations.

Iranian diplomats have offered assurances that the two ships wouldn't have weapons or nuclear or chemical material, MENA stated.

White House spokesman Jay Carney, briefing reporters on an Air Force One flight from California to Oregon, said, "We're monitoring that, obviously."

"But we also would say that Iran does not have a great track record of responsible behavior in the region," he said.

The move had been widely expected and Iranian officials have insisted the request is in line with international regulations.

It would be the first time since Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution that Iranian warships pass through the Suez Canal, which links the Red Sea and the Mediterranean.

Hahahahahaha  Iran does not have a track record of responsible behavior in the region .... words coming from a goverment that is  responsible for the wars the last 30 years worldwide ... American statesmen have their integrity behind their elbows  ...  if he only knew how unbelievable stupid he sounds ... and still thinking they are still a super power  ... but we in Europe know better,  the power of the USA is shrinking and that's a very good thing ...
