On the diplomatic front this morning: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi discussed efforts to resolve the conflict in Libya with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, an Ittihadiya statement said yesterday. Johnson expressed support for Egypt’s efforts to bring about a ceasefire and committed to work in tandem with the Egyptian government going forward. They also discussed the latest developments on the Palestinian issue and the talks on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.

Efforts to alleviate the debt burden of developing countries in light of the pandemic received an endorsement from Prime Minister Madbouly during a UN meeting this week, the local press reports. The international community should work together to ease credit terms from international lenders and ensure funds are provided to the hardest-hit countries, Madbouly said. He also came out in support of efforts to reduce the cost of transferring remittances from workers abroad.
