Direct flights between Egypt + Libya to resume on 30 September

Egypt and Libya have agreed to resume direct flights between Cairo and three Libyan airports at the end of this month, according to a Libyan government statement. Direct flights between the Egyptian capital and Mitiga near Tripoli, Benina in Benghazi, and Misrata will start operating from 30 September, the statement said. The announcement comes less than a week after Egyptian and Libyan officials signed a raft of agreements that will see Egyptian companies play a larger role in the country’s reconstruction and strengthen bilateral ties.

Egypt-Israel talks focus on peace process: Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry discussed the Israeli-Palestinian peace process with his Israeli counterpart Yair Lapid during a phone call yesterday, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement. Shoukry stressed the need for Israel and Palestine to resume peace negotiations, and reaffirmed Egypt’s commitment to supporting the peace process. This came less than a week after Israel PM Naftali Bennett made a landmark visit to Egypt for talks with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
