Egypt in the News on 22 June 2020

Egypt signaling it could intervene in Libya is still leading the conversation in the foreign press this morning. The National notes Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain backing Egypt’s right to stage a military intervention to protect its borders if the Government of National Accord attempts to seize the Libyan city of Sirte. A ceasefire in the strategic city depends on whether Russia and Turkey can reach an agreement, Financial Times’ Heba Saleh says.

Also getting attention in the foreign press:

  • Egypt’s papyrus industry is in trouble: The absence of tourism in Egypt the past few months has caused the demand for papyrus to plummet, causing manufacturers to stop production and wait for better days, according to Reuters.
  • Reuters took note of the start of Thanaweya Amma exams yesterday, which saw masked highschoolers screened for fevers before packing into testing centers.
