Politics is the flavour of the morning in the foreign press: The Hill says that Egypt is emerging as an influential powerbroker in the region, coming off diplomatic achievements in Gaza, Libya and Syria. Sputnik suggests that Egyptian diplomats are looking at political developments in Israel with pessimism, expecting a government led by far-right leader Naftali Bennett to make resolving the conflict with Palestine even more difficult.
