Tiran and Sanafir remain in the spotlight

Amr Adib was back on the Tiran and Sanafir island handover debate on last night’s Kol Youm (watch, runtime: 1:37).

The “cornerstone of this debate” is a presidential decree from 1990 that defines Egypt’s maritime borders with Saudi Arabia and lays no claim to the two islands, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Omar Marwan said. Other documents claiming otherwise are not official, he added (watch, runtime 16:16).

Adib then aired footage of the protest against the agreement outside the Press Syndicate yesterday, which included former presidential candidates Hamdeen Sabahy and Khaled Ali in the crowd (watch, runtime: 5:16).
