A drop of water may these days result in military confrontations especially if there is a failure of diplomatic negotiations in various regions of the world. The surprising thing is that the conflict is taking place in areas which are rich in water resources while you do not hear a whisper from the countries that have a poor supply of this precious liquid. However, I do not totally dismiss the possibility of revolutions in these regions if there is a long period of drought.

The Nile which is the vein of life for Egypt has been at the top of the country’s strategic priorities since Egypt and Sudan were one country under British colonial rule. Egypt and Sudan have tried to establish distinctive ties with the countries of the Great Lakes, which represent the source of the Nile, through technical assistance, field services, agreements and bilateral or group accords.
