UK Ambassador to Egypt speaks on GERD
GERD was the only topic of note on the airwaves yesterday: Outgoing British Ambassador to Egypt Geoffrey Adams made an appearance on Sherif Amer’s Yahduth Fi Masr to discuss several topics including the GERD file (watch, runtime 24:07). The UK doesn't want to intervene in the GERD talks but is working toward making Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia go back to the negotiating table the soonest under the umbrella of the AU to reach a “positive” resolution, he noted.
And in other GERD/Nile miscellany: Saudi Arabia’s call for a “clear mechanism” to start negotiations between the three countries got coverage in Hadeeth Al Kahira (watch, runtime 1:13), while Egypt’s diplomatic efforts to block the dam and protect its water security got attention in Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime 9:34). Danish Ambassador to Egypt Svend Olling had a phone interview with Amer to talk about the video he recently shot for the Nile, saying that the EU is cooperating with Egypt on combating climate change and its possible consequences on the Nile (watch, runtime 9:02).
