"Egypt also appeals to the international community to consolidate the efforts needed for achieving this fair goal,' President Sisi added in a pre-recorded speech for the opening of the 5th edition of Cairo Water Week (CWW 2022), which kicked off Sunday under the theme: "Water at the Heart of Climate Action."

He also stated that Egypt had always been among the first countries to uphold international law and principles related to transboundary rivers, to avoid casing any harm to other parties and ensure equitable use of shared resources.

Sisi stressed that it is Egypt's firm conviction to work together to optimize the wealth of the Nile basin to ensure prosperity for all, instead of uncooperative individual action that only leads to limited development.
