All lab water tests made by the concerned authorities have shown that it is safe for human consumption, the minister asserted in a statement.
Bahaaeldin added that the tests confirm that the Nile water meets international health and environmental standards for safe drinking water.
The statement was made in response to rumors spread by some mineral water manufacturers claiming that the Nile water is harmful for humans.
