The Suez Canal chief said that authorities are negotiating a financial settlement with the owners of a massive vessel that blocked the crucial waterway for nearly a week. Lt. Gen. Osama Rabie said he hoped talks with Shoei Kisen Kaisha Ltd., the Japanese owner of the skyscraper-sized Ever Given, will conclude without a lawsuit. We are discussing with them a peaceful resolution to the matter without resorting to the judiciary, he said.
