CAIRO - 19 November 2017: Minister of Irrigation and Water Resources Mohamed Abdel Ati said Saturday Bonn Climate Change Conference should discuss topics related to the preservation of the water rights of the downstream countries.

The conference should recommend the necessity of full coordination with the downstream countries regarding the implementation of dams and facilities in the upstream countries so that no harm could happen to the other side, Abdel Ati said in his speech at the close of the conference in Germany, according to a ministry statement.
