    This week’s program begins by discussing the rising tensions between Egypt and Ethiopia over the latter’s Grand Renaissance Dam.

    Then it segues into talking about why an Emirati official called for the Saudi-led anti-terrorist coalition to bomb Al Jazeera. After that, the show explains why Russia is considering setting up a Red Sea naval base in Sudan. Once that's done, the next topic is the intensification of free trade negotiations between the EU and Mercosur. And finally, our top story of the week is Trump's ostensible compromise in promising Turkish President Erdogan that he'll stop arming the Syrian Kurds.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com
