Opinion| Iran and the US are behind sectarian conflict scheme in the Arab world

  In Yemen, President of the Presidential Command Council, Rashad Muhammad Al-Alimi, pledged to work to end the war and bring peace to Yemen, stressing that the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council will stand as an impenetrable dam to confront terrorism in all its forms, and will work to combat sectarian conflicts that are tearing up Yemen’s social fabric. This is especially so since Yemen has turned into an arena for sectarian conflicts that want Yemen to be a starting point to undermine the security and stability of the Arab Gulf.

Opinion| The repercussions of the Ukrainian crisis on Libya

   Signs of conflict appeared when Russia renewed its endeavor to end the tasks of the UN mission in Tripoli, a few weeks before the start of the discussion about extending its term and appointing a new head for it. Russia also stressed its refusal to empower veteran American diplomat Stephanie Williams and prevent her from obtaining international legitimacy beyond her mission as Special Adviser to the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Libya.

Opinion| Israel uses the Russia-Ukraine war to its advantage against the Palestinians

The first strategy is to accelerate the pace of settlement and change the reality on the ground, especially in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque, to reinforce the policy of “reducing the conflict” adopted by the Bennett-Lapid government, to decisively undermine the two-state solution. For example, as soon as the military confrontations began, the Israeli Minister of Immigration Pnina Tamano Shata announced that Israel was ready to receive thousands of “Jewish” immigrants from Ukraine.

Daily News Egypt provides a snapshot of Egyptian affairs in different sectors to a diverse set of readers inside the country, local and foreign businesspeople, and those who had never stepped a foot in the country.

Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the Arab Republic of Egypt Georgiy Borisenko

Open letter to Daily News Egypt’s editorial board: Russian Ambassador

I was surprised to find in the popular Egyptian English-language newspaper “Daily News Egypt” an article by a British “expert” Stephen Hall under the title: “Ukraine war: inside the web of Russia’s warring intelligence agencies”. The article contains insinuations and insulting remarks about the Russian leadership. Of course, one cannot question the Egyptian publishers’ ability …

Opinion|  What is good for Iran is dangerous for Arabs

About 30% of the agreement’s terms are still under discussion. The mullahs of Iran insist on “guarantees and verification because America’s customary non-compliance threatens any agreement.” This is what the administration of President Joe Biden cannot provide despite its insistence on the agreement because the Congress has not yet given him the green light to pass such an agreement.

China Saudi Arabia to bolster cooperation through Belt and Road e1551175664452

Opinion| Saudi-Chinese cooperation raises concerns in United States of America

     Experts also believe that allowing oil payments to be paid in yuan may pave the way for the establishment of a parallel system of international payments in which the Chinese yuan will occupy the importance and strength similar to the US dollar. Also, it will help Russia bypass the sanctions imposed by Western countries after it invaded Ukraine, as Moscow can use the yuan as well.

Opinion| The sanctions weapon will not affect Putin

Washington’s first major use of economic sanctions was Thomas Jefferson’s embargo—ruled from March 1801 to March 1809—in which the United States halted all exports to France and the United Kingdom in the hope of pressuring them to stop their attacks on neutral American merchant ships during the Napoleonic Wars.

Opinion| ‘Racist Europe’ welcomes Ukrainian refugees while shedding blood of Arabs and Africans

Today we can say with certainty that there is racism against black people in the United States, against the Palestinians in Israel, and Arabs and Africans in Europe and the United States. After more than two decades since the adoption of the historic Durban Declaration and Program of Action to Eliminate Racism, discrimination continues to permeate the institutions, social structures, and daily life of European societies.

Opinion| Putin puts an end to US hegemony

President Biden has managed the Ukraine crisis in the worst possible way, showing the whole world that he can deter Russia when the actual truth is certainly the opposite. The United States may have the ability to project its power anywhere in the world, but when dealing with another great power’s sphere of influence, its deterrence capacity is greatly diminished.

Opinion| Putin restores glory of czars and Biden is out of the scene

Both Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping have expressed their mutual willingness for more close coordination and mutual support at the United Nations, as Xi stressed that he respects the actions of the Russian leadership in the current crisis and that Beijing supports a negotiated settlement between Russia and Ukraine.

Opinion| Lavrov’s Nazism!

It is one of the most prestigious European universities and was founded about 200 years ago. I can testify that the majority of Ukrainians are the kindest people I have ever lived and dealt with.

Opinion| Vienna negotiations and the Arab countries

All reports indicate that the next round will be decisive and will set perhaps the final points for signing a new agreement with regional and international guarantees that will give Iran the green light to resume its nuclear programme. But, it will be outside the military framework, at least for the first five years, to allay the fears of its Arab neighbours, as well as some regional powers that used to take decisive initiatives to curb any potential danger, as happened before in Iraq in the eighties of the last century and Syria in 2007. In any case, it seems that we will see soon white smoke coming from the Vienna meeting’s room.

The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres

The Global Problem-Solving Paradox

As Secretary-General of the United Nations, I spend much of my time speaking with world leaders and taking the pulse of global trends. It’s clear to me that we are at a defining moment in international relations. Global decision making is plagued by gridlock – and a fundamental paradox lies at the heart of it. …

Opinion| Sudan and the Arab Spring revolutions

It is the same scenario in all its details; calls for demonstrations on social media, people taking to the streets, calls for the departure of the regime and the formation of a technocratic government, satellite channels igniting the situation, clashes between the police and demonstrators, blood and martyrs, even the demonstration squares are full of youths who check the demonstrators for weapons and contraband before allowing them entry! All to create chaos.
