Speaker of Egypt’s parliament, Ali Abdel Aal, said during a meeting with Russian lawmakers that his country has implemented 75% of its liabilities concerning security guarantees to Russian tourists, a Russian lawmaker said on Tuesday. "The speaker said they have implemented 75% of liabilities under our recommendations [on guaranteeing security for Russian tourists]," Sergei Gavrilov, the chairman of the property committee of the Russia State Duma lower parliament house, said after the meeting. "As soon as elements of security are ensured, regular air service, I think, will be resumed within six months," the lawmaker said. Chairman of the Egyptian parliament’s energy committee Talaat Al-Suwaidi also told journalists Cairo is interested in resuming air service with Russia as soon as possible. "Of course, we discussed the subject of resuming air service between Egypt and Russia. This issue is very important for us. We want flights to be resumed as soon as possible so that Russian tourists come to Egypt," he said. "Practically all who spoke on behalf of the Egyptian delegation stressed the importance of resumption of air service and tourist flows from Russia," Alexei Pushkov, the chairman of the Russian State Duma international committee, said commenting on the meeting. "The Egyptian side, naturally, is interested in resuming air service the soonest possible but the final decision is up to the Russian executive authorities - flights will be resumed as soon as they agree that security measures are sufficient." Russia suspended air service with Egypt following the crash of a Russian A321 passenger jet in Sinai. The jet owned by Russia’s Kogalymavia air carrier (flight 9268) bound to St. Petersburg crashed on October 31 some 30 minutes after the takeoff from Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheikh. It fell down 100 kilometers south of the administrative center of North Sinai Governorate, the city of Al-Arish. The plane was carrying 217 passengers and seven crew members. There were four Ukrainian and one Belarusian nationals among the passengers. None survived. In November, it was announced that the crash had been caused by an act of terror committed by means of a home-made explosive devise with a yield of up to one kilogram of TNT. More»

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has extended on Tuesday the state of emergency imposed in several parts of the Sinai Peninsula for another three months. The presidential decree published in the state's official newspaper on Tuesday dictates that the state of emergency will be effective starting Jul. 29. The decision involves the imposition of a curfew that begins at 7 PM and ends at 6 AM in the places where the state of emergency is in effect with the exception of al-Arish town whose curfew starts at 1 AM and ends at 5 AM "until further notice." Sisi had declared a state of emergency and a curfew in October 2014 in the border province for an initial three months in reaction to a militant attack that 33 security personnel killed. The Islamic State-affiliate Sinai Province group claimed responsibility for the attack. The state of emergency imposed in a number of areas in Sinai has been renewed several times since. In parallel, the Egyptian military says it has killed hundreds of "terrorists" in the context of the "Martyr’s Right" military operation which was launched by the security forces also in response to the Oct. 2014 attack. North Sinai militants have stepped up attacks targeting security forces since the military ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 after mass protests against his rule. More»

The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) kept the local currency’s rate stable at EGP 8.78 against the US dollar at Tuesday’s regular forex auction, state news agency MENA reported citing anonymous bankers. The CBE sold local banks $118.6 million out of the $120 million offered in an attempt to meet their needs for strategic and basic imported goods as Egypt - which has been facing shortage in hard currencies since the 2011 uprising - relies heavily on imports of staples to feed its population of 90 million. The exchange rate, set by the CBE on Tuesday was unlike some expectations of another devaluation that might have happened to tighten the gap between official and informal rates for the US dollar. The dollar changed hands at about EGP 11.40-11.50 on the black market on Tuesday, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported citing traders. Egypt's net foreign reserves rose slightly to $17.546 billion at the end of June, up from $17.52 billion at the end of May. Egypt’s annual headline inflation hit the highest level in 30 months to register 14.8 percent in June 2016, state statistics body CAPMAS stated on Sunday. More»

Egypt's population increased by over 17 million in the past decade, the country's official census authority said in a statement on Monday to mark World Population Day. The Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS) said the Egyptian population has swelled from 72.8 million in 2006 to 90.1 million in the beginning of 2016, a rise of 23.7%. The statistics agency said that an increase of 3.3 million people was estimated from 2006 to 2009 before another whopping 14 million added to the overall population over the next seven years. In April, CAPMAS deputy head Mohamed Abdel-Gelil, said that the population saw a significant rise from 80 million to 90 million in the past five years, whereas it took 50 years for the population to increase from 10 million in 1900 to 20 million in 1950.

After being shelved for years, the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians are expected to start again, this time with unprecedented Egyptian and Arab support, with developments in the region bringing the Arab initiative back into the light and indicating that Israel is bolstering relations in the Middle East and Africa. After almost two weeks since his visit to Ramallah, Egypt’s foreign minister Sameh Shoukry headed to Israel where he met Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to hold preliminary talks for a new peace process. Amid regional and international interest in the visit, which was not previously announced by either side, Israel clearly expressed its welcoming of Egypt’s first visit in nine years and the first since President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi came to power in 2014. “Our current foreign policy is successful, but to be more successful [Egypt] needs to move [quickly] with the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and now it is time to move,” the head of the Israeli Studies Department at the Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs at Ahram, Mohamed Ibrahim, said to Ahram Online.

Debris possibly belonging to the crashed EgyptAir MS804, which washed up on the shores of Israel last week, arrived in Egypt on Sunday from Tel Aviv. Israeli authorities announced the discovery of pieces of plane wreckage on the beaches north of Tel Aviv on Thursday, suspecting they had been carried along the coast from the spot where the plane plunged into the Mediterranean Sea north of Alexandria in May, killing all 66 passengers on board. The Egyptian crash investigation committee will examine the wreckage to confirm whether it belonged to the EgyptAir Airbus A320. More»
