Foreign policy leads the conversation on Egypt’s talk shows

Foreign policy was in the limelight once again on the airwaves last night.

Shoukry speaks on GERD, Libya: Egypt is working to bring all parties to the Libyan conflict to the negotiating table to work out a political resolution and avoid a military escalation in our western neighbor, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry told ‘Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa. The minister noted that the emergency Arab League meeting on Libya, which Egypt called for, is scheduled to take place today. Shoukry also discussed Egypt’s decision to turn to the UN Security Council on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, telling Moussa that the council should block Ethiopia from unilaterally deciding to fill the dam’s reservoir before reaching an agreement with its downstream neighbors (watch, runtime: 10:56).

Elsewhere, Education Minister Tarek Shawki recapped the first day of Thanaweya Amma exams and the ministry’s efforts to prevent any coronavirus infections inside exam halls in a phone call with El Hekaya’s Amr Adib (watch, runtime: 0:54).
