Ethiopian PM Wants To Maintain Egypt’s Water Supplies

Both Egyptian and Ethiopian prime ministers have agreed to resume negotiations concerning Ethiopia’s Renaissance Dam in the next two weeks, as the Ethiopian Dam is seen as a serious threat to Egypt’s water supply.

Both countries and Sudan held meetings to talk about the issue, but it’s yet not the time when they reached a deal on water flow and other issues.

Sources assume that the Renaissance Dam will give Adis Ababa control over a large sector of the Nile River water that’d make changes in regional power.

During the last meeting, Egyptian PM, Moustafa Madbouly delivered a message from Abdelfattah El Sisi, in which he asked for serious actions and implementing of what had been agreed during their meeting in Cairo in June.

Ethiopian PM, Abiy Ahmed has stressed on his intentions that he wants to maintain Egypt Nile rights, as well as the rest of the countries.

Bilateral talks will finally be held in the next two weeks to settle all the holding points of disagreement between the three countries; Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia.
