The Egyptian journalist affiliated with the regime, Mustafa Bakri, published what he said were evidence proving the role of the former president, Hosni Mubarak, in transferring the dependency of Tiran and Sanafir islands to Saudi Arabia.
And on CNN, Bakri said that his previous talk about Mubarak’s issuance of a decision to transfer the dependency of Tiran and Sanafir to Saudi Arabia does not offend the late president, citing the correctness of his words due to the issuance of a decision by him in 1990 that defines the baselines in delineating the maritime borders of the Red and Mediterranean Bahrain.
According to him, Egypt informed the United Nations of its decision through its foreign minister at the time, Ismat Abdel-Majid, on May 2 of the same year, and from that date Egypt recognized that the islands of Tiran and Sanafir are outside its sovereignty.
CNN published a picture of Mubarak’s decision and the Foreign Ministry document, which Bakri claimed to prove Mubarak’s involvement in this prior to the regime of Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.

Bakri’s talk in this regard earlier raised the ire of “Alaa Mubarak,” the son of the former president, who posted a tweet on Twitter in which he attacked the journalist, who is also a member of Parliament.
Bakri said regarding Alaa Mubarak’s tweet that he would not respond to him “out of respect for attending the condolences of his mother upon his release from prison,” reiterating that he did not aim from his speech to offend the late president.
Bakri had stated in his speech to a website that Mubarak decided to transfer the dependency of the islands of Tiran and Sanafir in the Red Sea to Saudi Arabia in 1990, adding: “Historically, Tiran and Sanafir belong to Saudi Arabia, and we are one Arab nation.”
After publishing this conversation, Alaa Mubarak wrote on Twitter: “He made a decision !! Look how it really works! This jade from his youth deserves the title of professor and head of department in the … no accountability means,” he said.
Egypt signed the Bahrain border delimitation agreement with Saudi Arabia in 2016, which recognized the subordination of the two particles in the Red Sea in front of the city of Sharm el-Sheikh to the Kingdom.
