Cairo, Safar 18, 1436, Dec 10, 2014, SPA -- Prince Khalid bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, the honorary President of the Arab Water Council, opened here the works of the 3rd Arab Water Forum organized by the Arab Water Council under the slogan "Together Towards Secure Arab Water Future," in the presence of Egyptian Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation, Dr. Hossam Maghazi; President of the Arab Water Council, Dr. Mahmoud Abu Zeid; Saudi ambassador to the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Kingdom's permanent representative to the Arab League Ambassador Ahmed bin Abdulaziz Qattan and a number of Ministers of Water, Agriculture as well as a number of experts from various governments, regional and international organizations.
In his opening speech, Prince Khalid made clear that the implementation of the slogan "Together Towards Secure Arab Water Future" requires that the Arab countries have a minimum degree of political unity or economic agreement and social consensus so as not to disperse interests, pointing out that the failure or inability to ensure the minimum of Arab water security threatens political and social stability in all Arab countries.
