Egypt highlights dangers of work on Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

Egypt obtains more than 90 percent of its limited fresh water from the Nile, as well as fears the dam might ruin its economic climate

Ethiopia claims the building of the dam is essential to its economic advancement and also power generation

CAIRO: Egypt’s foreign minister has reiterated his worries over Ethiopia’s unilateral techniques relating to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam which, he claims, might pose an excellent danger to his nation “which suffers from unique water shortage as the driest nation on the planet.”

Egypt obtains greater than 90 percent of its limited fresh water from the Nile, and also fears the dam can devastate its economic situation, while Ethiopia claims the construction is essential to its economic growth and power generation.

Sudan is concerned about the dam’s security as well as controling water flows via its own dams and also water stations.

Consequently, a bitter disagreement in between the 3 nations over the filling and also operation of the dam continues to be unsettled.

Sameh Shoukry was talking at the opening of the 159th session of the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers, under the presidency of Egypt, on Wednesday.

He stated: “I do not stop working to attend to a crucial concern of sophisticated priority, which has fateful effects for Egypt’s national protection, specifically the risk of independent Ethiopian techniques on the usual river containers, of which the GERD is one of the most noticeable current symptom.”

Shoukry highlighted Ethiopia’s continuing process of structure and filling the dam without reaching a binding legal agreement with the two downstream nations.

He stressed Egypt’s dependence on its “Arab bros to force Ethiopia to desert its unilateral, non-cooperative practice,” and also to reveal the “needed political will to take on any of the compromise services that were suggested at the negotiating table, and that confirmed to completely achieve Ethiopia’s financial interests without bias to the fates of individuals of the downstream nations.”

Shoukry, chairman of the session, introduced the choice to put the GERD as a permanent item on the schedule of the Arab League.

Dealing with a press conference together with Ahmed Aboul Gheit, the Arab Organization’s secretary-general, Shoukry stated the decision confirmed the commitment to “shielding the civil liberties of both downstream countries.”

He added: “Egypt has actually been elevating the issue of GERD with the Arab Organization for years.

” It was raised in consultative meetings, and an Arab setting was provided on it four years back, but it is necessary that there is an Arab decision supporting the water civil liberties of Egypt and also Sudan.

” This is something that worries the peoples of Egypt and also Sudan– more than 140 million Arabs– and also it has effects for the rest of the brotherly Arab nations.”

The Arab League’s choice “calls on Ethiopia to show flexibility on the problem of GERD, as it is related to Arab nationwide security,” Shoukry stated.

He added: “Ethiopia needs to keep in mind that there is a common vision for 22 Arab countries in this file, specifically given that there are bilateral relations and rate of interests between Ethiopia as well as Arab countries, and also these connections might be influenced by this problem.”

Shoukry said clinging to unilateral activity will cause even more stress as well as adverse interaction in between the nations affected by the dam.

He included that Egypt was functioning to enhance joint action and also connections between the Arab Organization as well as local collections.

He went on to state that a decision was taken to hold a conference in between Arab foreign priests as well as their European equivalents in June.
