Minister of Irrigation and Water Resources Dr. Mohammed Abdel Ati said today the ongoing negotiations on Rennaisance dam in Ethiopia require patience.
Ati explained that the Nile water is an international issue and Egypt has faced lots of problems while conducting relevant studies since 2012.
During his speech at the meeting with the Wafd Party، Ati called on the Egyptian people to deal with the matter in a positive manner. He pointed out that the state has upgraded more than 200 rainwater storage facilities in the last few years.
He remarked that the ministry provided this year more than one billion and a quarter cubic meters of water، calling for the need to provide alternative water resources through the desalination of seawater.
