IN DIPLOMACY- Egypt and Cyprus’ common interests in the Eastern Mediterranean and their cooperation with Greece were on the agenda for President Abdel Fattah El Sisi and Cypriot Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides during a meeting in Cairo yesterday, according to an Ittihadiya statement.

Cairo + Khartoum flex their military muscles amid GERD tensions: Egypt’s Armed Forces are in Sudan for a joint drill, dubbed “Guardians of the Nile,” to be held from 26 to 31 May, SUNA reports. The exercises come against the backdrop of the ongoing impasse in negotiations over the filling and operation of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. Egypt previously beefed up its military ties with upstream countries including Uganda and Burundi. The Associated Press took note of the story.

Egypt separately kicked off another two-week joint military exercise with the UAE on Friday dubbed “Zayed 3,” the Egyptian Armed Forces said in a statement. Both sides will exchange military training expertise as well as develop joint combat skills.
