On a trip like this whereas many new job was hoping to rekindle.
And -- -- sound friendship that has been estranged for thirty years.
But -- of course -- today it it it's not about what the public exits about the exchange of money between these two leaders and it seems like Iran has come to the table.
With the big each back.
And Egypt is except -- While they haven't exactly happened yet happened yet -- they might.
That that because their economy is in shambles -- that's if the think about -- revolutions happen in the first place people are hungry the economy was in that country can't sustain the huge population keeps.
Growing and obviously as tourism with the as a huge moneymaker for the egyptians and the south the most desirable place to visit so that's been a lot -- -- -- So they might just say yes.
But what the amount they found them -- saying.
Yes well that would probably a -- them from obviously the aid and the military help that weren't giving them but what be running regime basically doing -- thing.
Well -- getting the help from the Americans were willing to offer you the same you don't half to.

Farm policy record you can actually do your own thing and the money regime seeing an opportunity here to have a hand in in bringing Egypt in on on their -- so how.
Please -- -- -- if they go -- offer them the exact same support who who would they -- While it depends on exactly how the one before we have to remember and remember the issue throwing what does that symbolize.
At the about the quarter of that you have these clerics also in Egypt and and -- Morrissey regime is obviously Muslim Brotherhood the very religious.
Didn't -- the geopolitical.
You know advances here as a priority they might see the -- Shiite.

Obviously the regime and it has its own agenda and now Egypt is nothing Egypt that it used to be why we often Egypt's aid in the first place since -- President Carter gave them.
All aid military aid to incentivize them being the peacekeeper in the -- -- right they help out the -- that Camp David accords which lets -- the peace between.
Israel and Egypt but -- not be hitting the same way we're not gonna be giving them the same 88 when they're not be hitting the same way and that there actually causing up to -- Yeah my question wasn't gonna run -- let's be squeezed so tight with all of these sanctions their currency is being inflated away yet they somehow have one point six billion dollars sitting on the sidelines did Egypt really offer them credit line right but.
-- a what does that mean they're giving them oil and natural gas or something about the Iranian regime came out instead even though we're tight on sanctions if another slap from the -- thing -- the US.
We're still offering them this money because.
We got around the sanctions so they're basically saying look we're we're not really hurting us where or not they re -- not a big deal out and the bottom line is it's not really helping it's not hurting them as badly as we want spots popular UK or Canada.
Well I mean it's very tricky recently I don't know look like were caving to intimidation and -- What is the appropriate US -- -- -- the response the US saying -- been offering all this -- we expect a certain level.
About behavior we don't want you had you know basically have a a new chapter and and and follow if things have changed basically and that's the wake -- call here and know -- right thank you so much appreciate information lot to chew on there.
