In order to iron out differences over an Ethiopian dam on the River Nile that Cairo sees as a threat to its water supplies, Egypt said, it would hold talks with Ethiopia in the coming two weeks.

Over the $4 billion hydroelectric Grand Renaissance Dam, the two countries, Egypt and Ethiopia and also Sudan have held a series of meetings but they have yet to reach a deal on managing flows and other issues.

Egypt fears that, whether this scheme will restrict the waters coming from Ethiopia’s highlands, through the deserts of Sudan, to its fields and reservoirs. But Ethiopia says it will have no such impact when Ethiopia wants to become Africa’s biggest power exporter.


According to the report of MENA, state news agency, Mostafa Madbouly, the prime minister of Egypt and Abiy Ahmed, his Ethiopian counterpart agreed “to start bilateral discussions in the next two weeks to agree on the points that remain unagreed.”

The news agency also cited that, Abiy saying he wanted to preserve Egypt’s Nile river rights. By 2020, the dam was scheduled to be finished.
