Fez – The head of the state Radio and Television Union of Egypt (ERTU) Essam El-Amir has called upon Egyptian TV channels to cover the ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of King Mohamed VI’s coronation.
Amid the controversy stirred up in Morocco following Egyptian anchor, Amany El Khayat‘s anti-Moroccan remarks, Egyptian state television is to provide broad coverage of the upcoming celebrations scheduled for July 30 marking the 15th anniversary of the coronation of King Mohamed VI of Morocco.
According to the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram, Essam Al Amir, Egypt’s head of the State Radio and Television “has asked his TV channels to give decent coverage to the royal Moroccan celebrations, in order to mark the excellent ties between the two states.”
The call for Egyptian media’s coverage of the national Moroccan celebration comes after the Egyptian TV presenter’s disparaging remarks regarding Morocco’s King and the ruling Islamist party, claiming that the Moroccan economy is based on “prostitution.”
Essam Al Amir called on Moroccan and Egyptian media outlets to close the book on the recent incident, and move forward.
