Egypt to seek over $1 billion in damages for Suez Canal blockage

Suez Canal Authority head Lt Gen Osama Rabei said Egypt is expecting more than $1 billion in damages after the cargo ship Ever Given blocked the Suez Canal for almost a week. In a phone interview to a pro-government TV show, Rabei also warned that the ship and its cargo will not be allowed leave Egypt if the compensation case goes to court. However, Rabei didn’t specify who would be paying it.

That's not a supertanker. It's a container ship. Big difference.

Egypt should have had state farm insurance for the canal.

So is Egypt getting 1 billion dollars or are they expected to pay that amount? A little confused with the wording.

They’ve been dredging this thing since it’s creation. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem for Egypt given its significance. The major problem I see for Egypt is the bad flack middle eastern countries get due to the nearby violent political instability: Isis, Boko Haram, Lydia, South Sudan, Israel/Palestine, Tunisia (back when those female hikers were beheaded), Morocco, etc. I hate to say it but the problems of these regions aren’t to do with inequity but with each other. Yes. Blame the British and the French for cultivating this instability and blame the CIA and USSR for selling them copious amounts of weapons. If African and Middle Eastern nations were to industrialize and learn from the successes and failures of Western Europe and make implementations on their own end to integrate groups under one shared identity (What made America so strong until recently. There is now Red State America and “We Hate Red State America” America. “Hate the other” is the barbaric thing championed by “progressives”. They just use fancy terms to make people right of center the bad guys.
