More GERD on the airwaves on 12 July 2021

GERD is likely to stay on the talk shows’ agenda for some time: Egypt’s Permanent Representative at the UN Mohamed Edris was on Ala Mas'ouleety last night to share the latest updates on GERD issue at the UN Security Council (watch, runtime 21:38). Unfortunately, he didn’t have much insight, saying only that the council’s members don’t want to take a position on the dam that could be used against them later, but that Tunisia is continuing to follow up on its draft resolution.

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry’s visit to Brussels and his meetings with European foreign ministers and other officials also got coverage: Slovenia’s foreign minister confirmed following his meeting with Shoukry that the GERD will be on the agenda when the bloc's foreign ministers meet today, Ala Mas'ouleety’s reporter Magdy Youssef told Moussa (watch, runtime 16:18). Shoukry will hold more meetings with EU foreign ministers today, Youssef said.

ELSEWHERE- Suez Canal Authority boss Osama Rabie was on Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime 4:56) and El Hekaya (watch, runtime 3:12) to talk about the latest revenue figures released yesterday. We have the full story in the news well, above.
