Sorour summons Minister of Irrigation to discuss Nile Basin crisis
Sorour summons Minister of Irrigation to discuss Nile Basin crisis
MP Dr. Ibrahim Jaafari, from the Muslim Brotherhood's parliamentary bloc, has succeeded in acquiring a petition with 20 MPs signatures to discuss the Nile water agreements between Egypt and Sudan.

 The ruling NDP had originally rejected the proposal for discussion but were overruled and PA speaker Dr. Fathi Sorour agreed to the request. It is expected that the Irrigation Minister will make a statement in response to Sorour's summoning.


Jaafari stressed that the upstream Nile countries insistence to hold agreements which excluded Egypt and Sudan was unacceptable. He pointed out that this exclusion would post a great threat to Egypt and its waters. The MP added the Israelis occupation Authority's constant scheming to take over the area's waters particularly in Burundi and Ethiopia must not be taken lately.
