CAIRO – Political science professor Mohamed Kamal expected Wednesday the Middle East region to have a low priority on the foreign policy agenda of Joe Biden when he takes over the presidency of the United States in January.

He added at a seminar organized by al-Bawaba News on the latest elections in the United States that Egypt is by far the most stable country in the region.

Kamal expected the notorious American blueprint for settling the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, known as the "Deal of the Century", to disappear altogether in the coming period.

"This plan will be substituted with the two-state solution," Kamal said.

He expected Egypt to feature highly in Biden's foreign policy agenda.

"Biden's administration will be very rational," Kamal said. "It will contain some of the political expertise in the United States," he added.

A host of political scientists, former diplomats and experts attended the seminar, which – among other things – discussed the expected American foreign policy line under Biden.
