Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi affirmed that his country’s share of the Nile water was “untouchable because it is a red line,” warning of the repercussions on stability in the region.
Al-Sisi said in a press conference on the sidelines of his visit today to the Suez Canal: “No one can take a drop of water from Egypt, otherwise there will be a state of instability in the region that no one can imagine.”
He continued: “The hostile action is ugly and has great effects that extend for many years, and negotiation is our choice regarding the Renaissance Dam.”
He added, “All we are asking for is within the international laws and standards in force in cases of transboundary water,” wishing to reach a legal and binding agreement regarding the filling and operation of the Renaissance Dam.
Al-Sisi added, “We have not and will not threaten anyone, but no one will be able to take a drop of water from Egypt, and no one is far from our capabilities.”
