“An atmosphere of war” prevails in Egypt after Sisi’s lightning visit to Khartoum

Those who watched the activities commemorating the “Martyr’s Day” that President Sisi attended today (March 9th), witnessed the state of enthusiasm, and the documentary programs about the Egyptian army’s heroics on the battlefronts against Israel, and his crying when he greeted the son of the martyr Mustafa Abido, and listened at the same time To the stories of the martyrs, he is well aware that the Egyptian leadership may have decided its order by resorting to the military option to deal with the Renaissance Dam crisis, after Ethiopia’s rejection of all African and international mediation, and that these celebrations are the beginning of popular and military mobilization in preparation for this option.

Perhaps what Mrs. Maryam Al-Mahdi, the Sudanese Minister of Foreign Affairs, said in an interview she gave to Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper published on Monday after her visit to Cairo and her meeting with President Sisi that there are other options for the two countries (Egypt and Sudan) if Ethiopia insists on the unilateral filling of the dam, a sign. Indirectly to the aforementioned military option.

The Ethiopian authorities did not leave any other option for their partners in the waters of the Blue Nile, as Egypt and Sudan showed themselves long and knocked on all doors, and accepted all the efforts of American and African mediation, but in the end they were rash when Ethiopia today rejected a final Sudanese initiative to form a quadripartite mediation that includes representatives of the Presidency of the Union The African Union (Congo), the United States, the European Union, and the United Nations, and insisted on adhering to the African mediation, which reached a dead end due to its intransigence.

When Mr. Yasser Abbas, the Sudanese Minister of Irrigation, confirms that the Ethiopian decision to fill the Renaissance Dam reservoir unilaterally without an agreement threatens the lives of 20 million Sudanese and all Sudanese irrigation projects in the East including the Rosiers Dam, in addition to starving more than five million Egyptian families, the This means that the choice of war has become inevitable, because the victims of this provocative Ethiopian move are modest in front of their numbers, the numbers of victims of the American nuclear bombing of the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (214,000 dead) and perhaps the number of victims of the First World War as well.

Egypt and Sudan do not want war, so whoever wants it anywhere else, but when the lives of these millions of innocent farmers who will starve to death as a result of this Ethiopian move are exposed, who would blame the governments of the two countries if they took it, this dam has become an existential threat to them and their people together, and in violation of all agreements And the treaties that established the rules for distributing the Nile water between the upstream and downstream countries, and that is why we do not believe that it is a coincidence that the defense ministers of Egypt and Sudan signed an agreement for military cooperation last week, and the Egyptian and Sudanese Presidents (Abdel Fattah al-Burhan) confirmed in the joint statement following President Sisi’s visit to Khartoum. Rejection of the Ethiopian fait accompli policies and unilateral measures related to the Renaissance Dam.

Egypt is living in an atmosphere of war, and its leadership if it says it did, and it is sufficient to remind that its consideration of a region went a red line that changed all the facts on the ground in Libya, and the truthfulness of those who said, fear the anger of al-Hakim, and it seems that Turkey and other Arab countries are applying this saying and working to restore their relations with Cairo. We hope that the Ethiopian leadership will go in this direction as well, defuse the tension and invoke the language of reason.
