Abdel-Atti said he is upbeat about the visit of Rurema, stressing depth of joint relations.

The Egyptian official said he is looking forward to working together to achieve sustainable development in water resources in Burundi.

Rurema said he wants to promote cooperation between the two ministries in the water resources.

The two sides signed a memorandum of understanding between the two countries in the integrated management of water resources.

Under the deal, Egypt will conduct studies about the construction of dams to collect rain water in Burundi.
