Arab-Israel-US summit is dominating coverage in the foreign press

The Arab-Israeli sit-down in the Negev is getting the headline treatment in the foreign press this morning: The two-day gathering brought together the foreign ministers from Egypt, Israel, the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and the US in what foreign journos are hyping as a major realignment of regional alliances. “Unprecedented,” “groundbreaking,” and “historic” are all words being used to describe the two-day meeting this morning, which apparently will now become an annual forum.

The foreign press is still on the Russia-Ukraine war’s impact on our economy: The Financial Times is the latest to examine the soaring cost of living ahead of Ramadan and the wider impact of the conflict in Ukraine. Hotel occupancy rates in Red Sea resorts have plunged to just 5% since the war began, a representative of one travel company tells the salmon-colored paper, an indication of how exposed Egyptian tourism is to Russia and Ukraine.

ALSO- Five recently-discovered ancient tombs are going on public display in Saqqara, and the Washington Post has some striking photos of the artifacts.
