CAIRO - 13 February 2018: Irrigation Minister Mohamed Abdel's Ati's statements on the drought crisis in Cape Town during a TV program was meant to be a wake-up call to the whole world, the ministry's spokesman said in a statement Tuesday.

Speaking to Al Rai Al A'am TV program, the minister said the drought crisis in South Africa did not emerge all of a sudden for there had been several repeated warning signs for many years.

Alas these warnings had not been taken seriously, Abdel Ati said, cautioning of having a similar passive reaction to other cases in other parts of the world in the future.

Spokesman Hossam Imam said the minister screened a video about the drought crisis in Cape Town to send a clear message to the whole world to work hard to avoid having such kind of crises in the future.
