Egyptian authorities will partially reopen the Rafah border crossing linking Gaza with Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday and Thursday, a Palestinian official has said, describing the move as "almost certain." He said the move was aimed at allowing Gaza residents stranded on the border with Egypt to return to the blockaded Palestinian territory. "Information about the reopening of the crossing will be confirmed when Egyptian authorities contact the Palestinian side," Maher Abu Sabha, the head of Gaza's border authority, said in a statement. The Anadolu Agency could not immediately obtain comments from the Egyptian side regarding Abu Sabha's remarks. Some 6,000 Palestinians are currently stranded on the Egyptian side of the border with the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Interior Ministry said Thursday. Egypt closed the Rafah border crossing, Gaza's only access to the outside world, on October 24 following an attack on a military site in the Sinai Peninsula that left 31 Egyptian troops dead. More»

The evacuation of homes to create a buffer zone along the border with the Gaza Strip has been completed, the governor of North Sinai said on Monday. Areas of Sheikh Zuweid and Rafah are to be demolished as part of the Egyptian army's ongoing anti-terrorism campaign. The evacuation decision was made after a militant attack on 24 October killed 31 army personnel. Local governor Abdel-Fattah Harhour said the process of monetary compensation for the evacuees was still ongoing, state news agency MENA reported. He added that 290 families had been compensated, with a total of EGP 97 million (around $13.56 mn). A total of 802 houses have been evacuated, accommodating 1,156 families. Although the majority of homeowners agreed to the move, 140 did not, though they were still evacuated. The buffer zone is one kilometres wide and 14 long. Egypt's military has been combating a decade-long jihadist insurgency in Sinai, with attacks increasing over the past year. Hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed, while the army says it has killed and arrested hundreds of jihadists. Civilians have also been caught in the violence. More»

Egypt is trying to renegotiate an extension of an agreement worth $1.5 billion with Suez Canal Container Terminal which has a concession to run a port near the entrance to the canal, a government official said. Ahmed Amin, an advisor to Egypt's transport minister, attended talks two weeks ago with SCCT, which is 55 percent owned by APM Terminals, part of the Maersk group. Amin told Aswat Masriya, a news website sponsored by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, that talks in December would focus on the 14-year extension of the concession for the port, East Port Said. The extension agreement partially exempted SCCT from rent and other fees in exchange for the company building an $80 million pier. Amin said the terms of the extension were worth more than $1.5 billion. More»

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi left for Rome Monday on his first European trip since ousting his Islamist predecessor and overseeing a crackdown that has killed hundreds. Sisi is to meet Pope Francis at 1330 GMT on the first Vatican visit by an Egyptian leader in eight years, officials said. He will then meet Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi at 1800 GMT, Renzi's office said. Sisi, who was then army chief, ousted president Mohammad Morsi, the country's first freely elected leader, in July 2013, prompting a wave of deadly violence between security forces and Morsi's supporters that drew rebukes from Europe and the United States. But boosted by its increasingly central role in combating Islamist militancy, Egypt has come in from the cold since Sisi won a presidential election in May after crushing both Islamist and secular opponents. Officials said the four-day tour, which will also take him to France, is also aimed at securing European investment in the Egyptian economy, which has been battered by political turmoil since the Arab Spring uprising of 2011.

Egypt and South Sudan signed several cooperation agreements, following South Sudanese President Salva Kiir’s three day visit to Cairo which concluded with a meeting with his Egyptian counterpart. Kiir held closed talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi on Saturday, in which Al-Sisi asserted Egypt’s support of South Sudanese stability, reported state-run Al-Ahram. The newspaper added that Egypt would not intervene in the country’s internal affairs. Kiir’s visit to Egypt comes shortly after conflicting parties in South Sudan reached an agreement to end nearly a year of fighting between government and opposition troops. Hani Raslan, Sudan and Nile basin countries expert at the Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, said South Sudan is an “important country for Egypt in terms of the situation and strategies in Nile basin countries in general”. He added that it is in Egypt’s interests to have positive relations with South Sudan. This is especially so to prevent other parties whose agendas in South Sudan may be a burden to Egypt’s national security from gaining strength. More»

Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi on Sunday received the final report of the fact-finding committee assigned to investigate violent events in Egypt since the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi in June 2013, Egypt's presidency announced. The committee gave the report to El-Sisi at the presidential headquarters, said a spokesman for Egypt's presidency, Alaa Youssef. The president sent the document to the cabinet for discussion, after which it will be sent to judicial authorities to take the necessary actions concerning its findings, said the spokesman. The fact-finding committee was formed in December 2013 by interim president Adly Mansour and is headed by Fouad Abdel-Moneim Riad, a high-profile judge who was a member of a UN international commission on war crimes in former Yugoslavia. The fact-finding committee will hold a press conference on Wednesday to announce its findings. Egypt was swept up in nationwide violence after Morsi's ouster, especially after the bloody dispersal of two pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo that left hundreds dead in August 2013. More»

South Korean Prime Minister Chung Hong-won arrived in Cairo on Saturday on an official visit that will last for three days, during which he is expected to discuss means of boosting economic cooperation with Egypt. Receiving the South Korean Prime Minister at Cairo Airport were his Egyptian counterpart Ibrahim Mahlab, Tourism Minister Hesham Zaazou and the staff of the South Korean Embassy in Cairo, some airport sources said. Following his visit to Egypt, Chung Hong-won will head to Morocco and then Azerbaijan on a week-long trip aimed at bolstering economic cooperation with the three states, South Korea's official Yonhap news agency said earlier. It added that in Egypt, the South Korean premier would meet with his Egyptian counterpart Ibrahim Mahlab to discuss the participation of South Korean companies in building a nuclear power plant in Egypt. Egypt plans to construct four nuclear power plants for the generation of electricity. The plants are hoped to be operational between 2015 and 2025. A senior Electricity Ministry official said earlier that seven international companies had already applied for the construction of Egypt's first nuclear power plant. He said the companies included one from Russia, another from the United States, a third from South Korea and a fourth from France. More»
