In the first official comment on statements made by Ethiopia's ambassador in Khartoum who accused Egypt of planning to export Nile water to Israel, Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation Dr. Mohamed Baha'a-Eddien said that Egypt did not and will not export Nile water to Israel, Palestine or any other country simply because Egypt is suffering at the moment, from water shortage of around seven billion cubic meters annually.
The minister reaffirmed Egypt's full commitment to international laws and traditions that regulate matters relating to distribution of River water that prohibits channeling water to any country outside the Nile basin.
