Egypt's higher education minister said all students who protested at universities on Sunday will be expelled by the evening of the same day, as authorities hope to deter demonstrations on campus in the new academic year that begins this week. "All the students who participated in the violence and riots that took place in universities earlier today and were filmed on CCTV won't officially be university students by the evening," El-Sayed Abdel-Khalek said during a conference at Menoufiya University in the Nile Delta earlier on Sunday. He added that it is better to open a dialogue with the students. Protests took place at several universities on Sunday, mostly in Cairo – Ain Shams, Al-Azhar and Cairo universities – but also in Mansoura and Alexandria. At the heart of the protests was a recurring demand – to release students who have been detained by police. At least 78 students were arrested from their homes across the country between Saturday and early Sunday. A spokesman for the April 6 movement – an activist group that played a leading role in the 2011 uprising – said that the detained students were supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi. More»

Russian President Putin's special representative for the Middle East and deputy foreign minister, Mikhail Bogdanov, is coordinating with Egyptian officials the timing of the Russian president's visit to Egypt. Amid the conference of reconstructing Gaza, taking place Sunday in Cairo, Bogdanov told MENA state news agency that Egypt and Russia are in talks to coordinate the first visit of the Russian president to Egypt. Bogdanov added that he has discussed many issues with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, including fighting terrorist groups like the Islamic State and related regional developments. Egypt had strong ties with Russia in the 1950s and 1960s, with the Soviet Union the main supplier of arms to Egypt until the early 1970s. Relations soured after Israel and Egypt signed a peace treaty in 1979, bringing in $1.3 billion in annual US military aid to Cairo. President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi's first visit to a foreign non-Arab/African state after he was sworn in as president 8 June, following a landslide electoral victory, was to Russia. More»

 U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called on Sunday for a renewed commitment to achieving Middle East peace, saying a lasting deal between Israel, the Palestinians and all their neighbours could be achieved. But prospects for a renewed peace process appeared dim as Kerry offered no specifics on how to restart negotiations in his speech to a Gaza reconstruction conference in Cairo. The last round of U.S.-brokered peace talks, presided over by Kerry, foundered in April over Israeli objections to a Palestinian political unity pact including the Islamist Hamas movement and Palestinian opposition to unremitting Israeli settlement expansion. "Out of this conference must come not just money but a renewed commitment from everybody to work for peace that meets the aspirations of all, for Israelis, for Palestinians for all people of this region," Kerry told the conference. "And I promise you the full commitment of President Obama, myself and the United States to try to do that," he said. More»

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi urged Israel on Sunday to consider launching new peace efforts based on an Arab initiative first presented in 2002 and rejected by the Jewish state. Sisi was opening a conference in Cairo on rebuilding Gaza after a 50-day war between the Hamas and Israel. "We should turn this moment into a real starting point to achieve a peace that secures stability and flourishing and renders the dream of coexistence a reality, and this is the vision of the Arab peace initiative," he said. The plan, put forward by Saudi Arabia at an Arab League summit in Beirut in 2002, offered full recognition of Israel but only if it gave up all land seized in the 1967 Middle East war and agreed to a "just solution" for Palestinian refugees. US Secretary of State John Kerry was also expected to use the conference to recommit Washington to a two-state solution and keep the door open to negotiations, officials said, though they offered no specifics and the chances for restarting the peace process soon appear dim.

Turkey plans to keep a low profile at a donors’ conference for the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip hosted by Egypt on Oct. 12, with only a general director from the Foreign Ministry participating in the conference, Hurriyet Daily News reports. The meeting is officially at the level of foreign ministers, but Turkey will not send its Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğu due to the ongoing feud between Ankara and Cairo, which intensified due to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s remarks at the U.N. General Assembly in New York in September, in which he questioned whether the global summit was a place where those who “plot coups” are allowed to speak, slamming Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s appearance. “The United Nations, as well as the democratic countries, have done nothing but watch events such as the overthrow of the elected president in Egypt and the killings of thousands of innocent people who wanted to defend their choice. The person who carried out this coup is being legitimized,” Erdogan said at the time. His comments prompted Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry to cancel a planned meeting with Çavuşoğlu on the sidelines of the General Assembly. More»

Over its long history, which ushered in the written history of the world, Egypt lived through decisive moments when the future of the entire nation was at stake. Every time, its heroic people prove the country has a sword and invincible wall of human valour to repel any assailants and propel the nation to the stature it deserves above all enemies. When Egypt was established as a unified state in 5,000 BC there were no other states in existence. Thus, there were no outside threats and it was not interested in invading or ransacking any lands if it chose. These were inhabited by small tribal or familial communities that could never stand up to the first unified state in history, Egypt. The real threat facing the state that remained unified for nearly 1,000 years came from within because of ambitions to pounce on power by regions that had united and formed the bigger state. Egypt disintegrated into clashing regions for 1,000 years and the people suffered terribly from civil conflicts. Then, the ruler of one of the regions, Mena, was able to reunite the country and the Egyptian people sanctified him. The experience of unification followed by destructive disintegration made a unified state a hallowed notion for the people; they could take anything except what violates the unity of the state which is their banner, pride and structure that protects the unity of their country.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi urged Israel on Sunday to consider launching new peace efforts based on an Arab initiative first presented in 2002 and rejected by the Jewish state. Sisi was opening a conference in Cairo on rebuilding Gaza after a 50-day war between the Hamas militant movement and Israel. "We should turn this moment into a real starting point to achieve a peace that secures stability and flourishing and renders the dream of coexistence a reality, and this is the vision of the Arab peace initiative," he said.

Efforts aimed at holding Egypt's parliamentary elections later this year have gained momentum in recent days. In a meeting held on 9 October, following the end of the Muslim Eid Al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice), Egypt's president Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi urged a legislative reform committee to finalise the revision of a number of political laws. At the top of the list is a law that aims to redraw Egypt's electoral districts to comply with the requirements of a new constitution. A senior member of the committee, formed last June after El-Sisi was elected president of Egypt, told parliamentary correspondents on Saturday that the committee is taking major steps to finalise the electoral districts law so that parliamentary polls can be held later this year. "We know that the committee took so much time in revising the electoral districts law but this is necessary to ensure that it complies with the new constitution," said the source, stressing that "article 102 of the new constitution, passed last January in a public referendum, stipulates that in revising the law, legislators must ensure that electoral districts be redrawn to balance both the area and population of constituencies."

An Egyptian pilot had to opt for an emergency landing at Cairo Airport on Saturday after the cockpit windshield cracked while in the air. Al-Ahram's Arabic site reported the passenger flight set off from Sohag International Airport, Upper Egypt, heading to Saudi Arabian Capital Riyadh. The pilot, who was not named in the report, diverted the flight to Cairo after flying for an hour. The Airbus plane belonged to an unnamed private airline. More»
