World Policy On Air, Ep. 104: “Islands Apart”

World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.

Protests in Egypt against government plans to cede two uninhabited islands to Saudi Arabia are indicative of increasingly strained relations between the two nations. On the latest episode of World Policy On Air, Cairo-based journalist Sarah El Sirgany explores divergent Egyptian and Saudi approaches to Islamic extremism, foreign aid, oil, and Israel.

Read Sarah’s piece “Islands apart: Why the Saudi-Egypt alliance is on the rocks” in the winter Interrupted issue of World Policy Journal.
