The 60th general conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) concluded in Vienna, Austria on Friday, with a number of important resolutions. Among those resolutions were the application of agency safeguards. The resolution affirms the urgent need for all countries in the Middle East, except Israel, to accept full-scope agency safeguards to their nuclear activities. According to a statement by Egypt’s foreign ministry, a majority of the 122 countries in the agency voted for the decision, while six abstained from voting. No countries voted against the decision. Amr Amer, Egypt’s permanent ambassador at the IAEA, said in the statement that the resolution adoption resulted from the ongoing efforts of Egypt’s embassy in Vienna. He also added that the resolution reflects Egypt’s stance towards creating a nuclear-weapons free zone in the Middle East that supports the goal of regional peace and security. The decision is also considered a step towards the establishment of a Nuclear-Weapon-Free-Zone (NWFZ). It calls upon all parties directly concerned to consider undertaking needed steps, including confidence-building and verification measures, aimed at establishing an NWFZ in the Middle East. It also reiterated the director general’s mandate from earlier resolutions of the general conference to pursue further consultations with Middle East countries to facilitate the early application of safeguards. The decision was raised by Iran and Egypt back in 1974 in the UN general assembly. Meanwhile, Egypt is finalising necessary paperwork prior to the establishment of its first nuclear energy station. President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi met with Rosatom CEO Sergey Kiriyenko in Cairo on Thursday to discuss the final technical and financial aspects of the contracts between Egypt and Russia to launch the Dabaa nuclear power plant.

Egypt supports Morocco’s application to be reinstated in the African Union stating the kingdom has an important role to play in the development of Africa. “There is no obstacle that Egypt supports the request of Morocco back in the African bosom,”  said the Egyptian diplomat in Cairo daily newspaper. “Egypt and the Kingdom of Morocco have strong fraternal ties.” he said. “The return of Morocco will impact positively the work of the African Union and its contribution will undoubtedly be important to help in meeting the challenges facing the African continent,’ said the Egyptian diplomat. The African Union issued a statement on September 23 saying “the Kingdom of Morocco has officially submitted a request to join the Constitutive Act of the African Union and, thus, to become a member. Morocco decided to leave the Organization of African Unity in 1984 after the pan-African entity accepted the membership of self-proclaimed “SADR” or Saharwi Arab Democratic Republic. The OAU preceded the African Union. On September 23, Morocco submitted officially its request to join the African Union. The request was submitted by King Mohammed VI’s advisor, Tayeb Fassi Fihri, during a meeting he held in New York with Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Chairperson of the African Union Commission in New York. In a letter addressed to the participants in the 27th summit of the African Union in Kigali, Ruanda last July, King Mohammed VI announced Morocco’s intention to join the African organization. The King’s announcement was supported by 28 member states who submitted a motion to the chair of the AU, in which they expressed their formal support for Morocco’s access to the organization. Signatories of the motion include the following countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cape Verde, Comoros, the Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Djibouti, Eritrea, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Liberia, Libya, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sao-tome, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Swaziland, Togo and Zambia.

Egypt’s Prime Minister Sherif Ismail called on the government on Friday to put together an urgent plan to secure the country’s needs of strategic commodity reserves for at least the next six months. Ismail requested, in a statement released by the cabinet, to provide the required funds to implement this plan. He said, during a meeting held Friday, that the provision of goods and keeping prices unchanged has become a strategic and national goal, so as to meet the needs of citizens in all provinces, especially in Upper Egypt’s villages. He pointed out that the government should provide enough commodities, in addition to existing amounts, adding that the halt of exporting rice is still valid. He also called on tightening control over border crossings and ports. The cabinet’s statement mentioned that the minister of supply stated that “there are sufficient amounts and contracts for basic and strategic commodities.” The statements came amid the current economic crisis facing Egypt, due to the severe shortage of US dollars needed to import food and energy.

A German flight arrived in Egypt's Sharm El Sheikh from Frankfurt on Saturday after -a year of suspension- with 170 passengers on board, Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy stated. The flight is operated by the Egyptian low fare airline Air Cairo -a subsidiary of EgyptAir- that operates scheduled flights to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan in the Middle East, and inclusive tour flights to Egypt from Europe. Minister Fathy clarified that this flight comes as pursuant to the efforts exerted by the ministry to get Egypt's normal tourism rates back notably in Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada. A number of European states halted their flights to Egypt after a Russian plane crashed in Egypt's Sinai in October 2015, killing all 217 passengers on board in addition to seven crew members. On other side, Chairperson of Air Cairo Yasser El Ramly asserted that the company is set to operate a flight from Frankfurt to Sharm El Sheikh every week. Air Cairo operates eight flights to Hurghada every week from a number of German cities notably Munich,  Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, and Hanover, El Ramly added. More»

Russian transport minister said that it is "premature" to talk about resumption of flights to Egypt, Russian private news agency Interfax reported on Friday. Minister Maksim Sokolov said that reports about resumption of flights in October are "rumors". The statements were made days after a number of Russian media outlets , citing unnamed sources, reported that flights between Russia and Egypt may be resumed in October. The minister added that an aviation safety agreement between Egypt and Russia "may be" signed before the end of the year. He also said Russia expects an invitation in the near future from Cairo to inspect Egyptian airports as Russian transportation officials plan a minimum of one more  visit to Egypt to inspect airports. Moscow had suspended all flights to Egypt about 11 months ago, in the wake of a Russian airliner crash in Egypt's Sinai peninsula, as it was heading from the Egyptian resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg in Russia. The crash left all 224 people on board dead. Russia believes that a "terrorist act" was behind the crash, while Egypt denies the claim, maintaining that there is no evidence yet. Since the crash, Russia has sent several delegations to inspect security measures in Egyptian airports, which Egyptian officials continued to describe as in line with "international standards." On Tuesday, Russian officials including Sokolov met with Egypt's Minister of Civil Aviation Sherif Fathy in Cairo. In a statement later on the same day, the ministry said it is considering putting forth an agreement between Egypt and Russia that includes the security measures that will be followed in case flights between the two countries are resumed. Egypt’s tourism industry, a vital source of foreign currency, has been hit hard since the plane crash. More»

General Attorney of North Beheira prosecution Abdel Aziz El-Ewa ordered the detention of two more crew members of the capsized boat in Rashid for four days pending investigations, on accusations of human trafficking, according to state-run newspaper Al-Ahram. The prosecution had also ordered the detention of four other members of crew—all crew members have now been arrested. Two brokers were also arrested, as well as other 14 boat owners who helped transfer the illegal migrants to the boat. Twenty-four defendants in total have been arrested in connection with the illegal migrant case. During the investigations, the prosecution ordered that a committee be formed which is specialised in manufacturing boats with representatives from faculties of engineering, Navy shipyards, and fishermen to determine why the boat sank, and the load it could carry. The boat sunk on 21 August in the Mediterranean sea offshore from Rashid in Beheira governorate; it was carrying between 300 and 600 illegal migrants. The death toll has now reached 202, and the armed forces were able to rescue 163 people. More»
