Iran will confirm its new president on 3 August: Ebrahim Raisi is set to assume the Islamic republic’s presidency, which will be announced in a televised ceremony next Tuesday, according to Bloomberg. The swearing-in ceremony will follow two days later, in which Raisi will also reveal his new cabinet. The new president has said he will continue negotiations on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal, though observers have raised concerns that the change in leadership may set negotiations back.
President Abdel Fattah El Sisi talked bilateral relations with Czech FM Jakub Kulhánek during a meeting in Cairo yesterday, an Ittihadiya statement said. The meeting, which was also attended by FM Sameh Shoukry, saw the two leaders discuss potential investment and cooperation as well as efforts towards tackling terrorism and illegal immigration.
