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.
