Egypt’s new naval base dominates the talk shows + Shoukry is back to talk GERD

The opening of Egypt’s new naval base dominated the nation’s airwaves last night: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi inaugurated the Mediterranean base in Gargoub on the northwest coast, alongside Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed and Libyan interim president Mohamed Al Menfi. The 10 mn sqm July 3 base aims to increase Egypt’s naval presence in the East Mediterranean and protect Egypt’s northern and western borders.

Everyone was talking about it last night: Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime 3:22 I 2:20), El Hekaya (watch, runtime 23:40), Al Kahera Wal Nas (watch, runtime 4:44), Masaa DMC (watch, runtime 2:15 I 15:32), Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime 5:52) and Ala Mas'ouleety (watch, runtime 15:32).

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry was back on the airwaves last night to talk GERD, phoning-in to Al Kahera Wal Nas (watch, runtime 16:49) and Masaa DMC (watch, runtime 10:45) to talk about what he expects from the UN Security Council. We have more on this in the news well, above.
