The United States and Egypt are returning to a "stronger base" in bilateral ties despite tensions and human rights concerns, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday after talks with his Egyptian counterpart. "Egypt remains vital ... to engagement and stability in the region as a whole," said Kerry, who held the first bilateral strategic dialogue since 2009. "There are obviously circumstances where we have found reason to have grave concern and we have expressed it very publicly," he said at a news conference with Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri. "But we have multiple issues that we need to work on simultaneously." U.S.-Egyptian relations cooled after Islamist president Mohamed Mursi was ousted in 2013 by the military amid mass protests against his rule. More»

The head of the Suez Canal Authority, Mohab Mamish, revealed that he rejected the suggestion to change its name to the 30 June Canal, due to historical naval agreements Egypt has signed. In interview with Al-Arabiya News Channel Saturday, Mamish stated that Egypt was committed to the Convention of Constantinople and could not rename the Suez Canal as it would have to sign new agreements in order to regulate naval movement, according to international law. 30 June marks the popular protests in Egypt against Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, who was ousted 3 July 2013. Speaking about the new Suez Canal, Mamish stated that the economic unit in the Suez Canal Authority expected that revenues of the Suez Canal would increase to $13 billion instead of $5.4 billion annually after eight years. He also stated that the cost of digging the new Suez Canal did exceed $4 billion, as expected. "It costs us less than what we originally expected. After all, this is the Egyptian people's money," Mamish said. He added that work on the Suez Canal development project, as well the Suez Canal tunnels, would start right after the inauguration of the new Suez Canal Thursday. More»

The former Special Forces naval SEAL team leader and one time world record holder, is aiming to break a new diving world record as part of the celebrations for the opening of the Suez Canal extensions, and is set to start his mission on Tuesday morning. Described as the "Egyptian Whale" by the governor of South Sinai, and currently a marine pilot with the Suez Canal Authority, Hafez will attempt to dive for 125 kilometres, starting his mission on Tuesday at 7am, hoping to break the current milestone of 100 kilometres under water in 24 hours. Hafez told Ahram Online that the mission will start with 30 minutes of him diving at the deepest level of the new Suez Canal extension to show off the achievement that he described as a significant honour for Egypt. He will then carry on at the depth of six metres with the assistance of his team that consists of 12 professional divers. “We aim to break the current record by covering the distance of 125 kilometers in a time that ranges from 17 to 20 hours,” Hafez added.

An Egyptian court on Sunday again postponed announcing a verdict in the retrial of three Al-Jazeera English journalists, extending the long-running trial criticized worldwide by press freedom advocates and human rights activists. The case against Canadian national Mohammed Fahmy, Australian journalist Peter Greste and Egyptian producer Baher Mohammed embroiled their journalism into the wider conflict between Egypt and Qatar following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Judge Hassan Farid, who oversaw the case against the three, did not attend Sunday's hearing. Another judge announced the case had been postponed. More»

The United States and Egypt began Sunday strategic dialogue talks, their first since their relationship was strained by the military ouster of President Mohamed Morsi after mass protests against his rule in 2013. Despite U.S. lawmakers' concerns that Egypt is lagging on democratic reforms, Egypt remains one of Washington's closest security allies in the region. "The launching of the strategic dialogue today is a serious chance for the two sides to review the different parts of the Egyptian-American relationship, politically, militarily and economically and assessing this relationship in all respects," Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said in his opening remarks. Shoukry said he hoped the dialogue would "deepen" bilateral cooperation between the two countries. Relations had cooled after Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown by the military in 2013 after mass protests against his rule, but ties with former general Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who was later elected to succeed him, have steadily improved. The countries last held wide-ranging strategic talks in Dec. 2009. More»

Fifteen percent of all marriages in Egypt are child marriages, announced Egypt’s Minister of Population Hala Youssef on Thursday. Despite Egypt changing the legal age of marriage to 18 in 2008, child marriage continues across the country and particularly in underprivileged areas, said Youssef. According to a study published by the National Council for Women in 2013, 22 percent of girls are married before the age of eighteen. More»

An Egyptian court is set to announce the verdict in the long-running retrial of three Al Jazeera journalists. Egyptian Baher Mohamed, Canadian Mohamed Fahmy and Australian Peter Greste were found guilty in June 2014 of aiding a terrorist organisation, a reference to the Muslim Brotherhood, which was outlawed in Egypt after the army overthrew President Mohamed Morsi in 2013. Greste and Fahmy received seven years, while Mohamed was given 10 years. In January, an appeals court ordered a retrial, saying the initial verdict lacked evidence against the three journalists working for the Doha-based network's English channel. More»
