Egypt's Role in Stabilizing a Middle East in Turmoil
Tuesday, January 12, at 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET
The World Affairs Councils of America is pleased to present Motaz Zahran, Ambassador of Egypt to the U.S., for Embassy Row Live! Join this webinar for a discussion with Ambassador Zahran about contemporary challenges and historical issues that resonate today.

What is the 10-year legacy of the Arab Spring uprisings - in Egypt and across the region - that captured global attention in January 2011? With several US policymakers at the time returning in the Biden administration, what's next for Egypt-U.S. relations? What are Cairo's priorities in the region vis-a-vis Iran, Turkey, and other powers? As the first Arab state to recognize Israel more than 40 years ago, what role has Egypt played in the recent diplomatic ties established between Israel and Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Sudan, and Morocco? Other topics include counterterrorism, the recent lifting of the GCC blockade on Qatar, and conflict with Ethiopia over Africa's largest dam, will make for a rich conversation.
