Al-Sisi (Egyptian President): 

"No one will be able to take a drop of water from Egypt. Whoever wants to have a try, let him try.

Egypt's arm is long and capable of facing any threat.

If our water supplies are affected, Egypt's response will reverberate in the region.

There will be regional instability if one of Egypt's water rights is violated".

It was clear from the recent anger, and when the Egyptian air forces of multi-role fighters arrived at the Sudanese Marwa base, and the arrival of Egyptian special forces to Sudan to conduct intensive training with the Sudanese side

There is an ongoing water crisis within the country of Egypt and the people of Ethiopia concerning the Grand Renaissance Dam (GERD). The dispute over the GERD is part of a long-standing feud between Egypt and Sudan—the downstream states—on the one hand, and Ethiopia and the upstream riparians on the other over access to the Nile’s waters, which are considered a lifeline for millions of people living in Egypt and Sudan. Despite the intense disagreements, though, Ethiopia continues to move forward with the dam, arguing that the hydroelectric project will significantly improve livelihoods in the region more broadly.

Renaissance Dam (GERD) on the Blue Nile have escalated, particularly after Ethiopia announced that it had started filling the GERD’s reservoir, an action contrary to Egypt’s mandate that the dam not be filled without a legally binding agreement over the equitable allocation of the Nile’s waters. Egypt has also escalated its call to the international community to get involved. Already, the United States has threatened to withhold development aid to Ethiopia if the conflict is not resolved and an agreement reached.

After the Egyptian President made this bold and daring statement, it has received many reactions from some of the Arabian Counties.

Statements by the Arab countries within 24 hours after President El-Sisi's speech:

Jordan: Egypt's water security is part of the Arab national security, and we stand with our brothers in protecting their rights

Saudi Arabia: The water security of Egypt and Sudan is an integral part of Arab security, and we support the efforts made to reach a solution to the Renaissance Dam file.

Libya: Egypt's water security is part of our national security.

Kuwait: The water security of Egypt and Sudan is an integral part of the Arab national security.

Bahrain: We stand in solidarity with Egypt in preserving its national and water security, and protecting the interests of its people and their legitimate right to life.

UAE: We care very much and are keen to continue constructive diplomatic dialogue and fruitful negotiations to overcome any differences over the Renaissance Dam between the three countries.

The Sultanate of Oman: We stand in solidarity with Egypt in its efforts to resolve the dispute over the Renaissance Dam through dialogue and negotiation in a manner that achieves stability for the region and preserves the interests of all parties.
