Why did Egypt's president Nasser seize the Suez Canal in 1956? Egyptian officials determined the canal was dangerous and in dire need of repair. The act was to support an American and British financing decision on the Aswan High Dam. It was a nationalistic and retaliatory move to bring control of the canal under Egypt's command. The canal was seized to negotiate better trading relations with Britain, France, and the United States.
