Last Night’s Talk Shows on 27 January 2021
GERD was top of Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry’s agenda yesterday when we addressed MPs, telling them that finding a way through the stalemate is the country’s top foreign policy goal. The minister stressed the importance of reaching a binding legal agreement with Sudan and Ethiopia over the dam, laying the blame at Ethiopia’s doorstep for acting “unilaterally and intransigently.” Masaa DMC's Ramy Radwan phoned MP Tarik El Khouly, who praised Dhoukry for enhancing Egypt's position on the international stage (watch, runtime: 13:22).
