Egypt and Ethiopia are still at loggerheads over the construction of Ethiopia’s giant renaissance dam on the Nile. Egypt says Ethiopia has “summarily rejected” its plan for key aspects of operating the dam.
Meanwhile, Egypt itself has dismissed Ethiopia’s proposal as “unfair and inequitable.” Just some back and forth between the two countries.
Egypt thinks of the project as a threat to its existence as it gets at least ninety percent of its fresh water from the #Nile.
In a note circulated to diplomats last week by the Egyptian foreign ministry, points to key differences over the annual flow of water that should be guaranteed to Egypt, and how to manage flows during droughts.
This note comes as #Egypt, #Ethiopia
and the Sudan met earlier this week for their first talks in more than a year over the hydro-electric dam.
The four billion dollar grand Ethiopian renaissance #dam
was announced in 2011 and is designed to be the centerpiece of Ethiopia’s bid to become #Africa’s
biggest power exporter, generating more than six thousand megawatts.
