Egypt, reasserting its role as a regional mediator

In the chaotic tides of the Middle East, Egypt has always served as one of the leading anchors. Both regional states and international powers historically took Cairo into account in the various spheres of Muslim Arab and African affairs. Following turmoil in the early part of this decade, Egypt re-emerges as an important actor under the leadership of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

To further discuss this topic, we are joined here in the studio by Dr. Haim Koren, Former Israeli Ambassador to Egypt, and Dr. Eran Lerman who is the vice president of the Jerusalem Institute of Strategy and Security and a lecturer at Shalem College.
