Egypt looks to build closer ties with Ethiopia

April 21, 2011

A spokesperson for the ministry said Egypt, in line with accepted legal practice, has officially requested from the Ehtiopians all information related to the proposed “Millennium Dam” on the Blue Nile so that Egypt can study its effects on the nature of the Nile and downstream countries.

He added that Egypt’s final position on the dam will be determined by its affect on Egypt’s water quota. The spokesperson went on to add that Egypt hopes Ethiopia will prove receptive to its initiative for building new relations based on transparency.
