Topping coverage of Egypt are the Sudan talks
Topping coverage of Egypt in the foreign press this morning are talks between the foreign ministers of Sudan and Egypt to diffuse tensions between both countries. Some outlets, including the Associated Press, note the usual platitudes of brotherly love, but have also picked up on the lack of tangible progress on hot issues between the two countries, particularly the dispute over Halayeb and Shalatin. Most, however, such as Voice of America and Xinhua, are reporting the talks a positive step towards mending ties, which hit a new low when President Omar Al Bashir accused Egypt with supplying Sudanese rebels. Almost all sources reporting the meeting note the role the media in both countries has played in inflaming the situation.
