Opinion| Egypt and Saudi Arabia in the face of Iranian escalation

Despite the importance of this tour to enhance cooperation between the countries of the Arab region, it is primarily considered the culmination of the efforts of Saudi Arabia to activate the axis of moderation and confront challenges in the Middle East, especially Iranian escalation, which entails increasing divisions in the region between the Sunni and Shi’a sects and supporting terrorist groups to achieve tenuous political gains.

Egypt, EU cooperating to face shared challenges of water resource management: EU Ambassador

Our Hope, our Planet, Europe Day and Beyond

What does Europe Day tell us? It reminds us of the visionary ideas of European leaders like Robert Schuman to create an ever-deepening Union of sovereign European States to end a millennium of war and bloodshed among the European peoples. This plan, presented in a declaration on 9 May 1950, one day and five years after the end of a world war that had brought suffering and destruction on an unrivalled scale to Europe and far beyond, gave birth to an extraordinary peace project. For this achievement, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012.
