Lots of cooperation with Jordan on logistics, agriculture, and education

Egypt, Jordan sign raft of cooperation agreements as Joint Higher Committee wraps up: Egypt and Jordan signed MoUs to cooperate on logistics zones, youth and higher education programs, agricultural quarantine, and media, according to a Cabinet statement. The Electricity Ministry had said on Sunday that an agreement would also be signed on efforts to double the capacity of the electricity link between the two countries to 1 GW, but we haven’t seen anything on that front.

Jordanian Prime Minister Bisher Al Khasawneh tested positive for covid-19 following the meeting, leading to the cancellation of scheduled talks between him and President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.

Egypt and France have kicked off joint air and naval drills in the Mediterranean, the Armed Forces spokesperson said in a statement.
