Egypt is gloating about the latest Ethiopias agreement to postpone the filling of the dam

Post by Deqi-Arawit » 28 Jun 2020, 11:54


CAIRO: Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan have agreed to delay the filling of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) until a final deal is reached, the Egyptian presidency said on Friday.

The three countries decided to form a committee of legal and technical experts to draft a final deal, and will “refrain from taking any unilateral measures, including the filling of the dam, before the agreement is reached.”

The announcement came after an emergency African Union online summit of leaders of the three countries, chaired by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

In an interview, former Egyptian irrigation minister Mohammed Nasr Allam described the decision as a political victory for Egypt.

“Cairo demanded a halt to any unilateral decision taken by Ethiopia regarding the rules for filling the Renaissance Dam. The Ethiopian retreat came because they know Egypt has a prominent place in the Security Council. I expect the decision will be in the interests of Egypt,” he said.

Last week, Ethiopia said it would begin filling the dam in July, even without the approval of the two downstream countries.

However, on Saturday Ethiopia said it will reach a final agreement with Egypt and Sudan on “a few pending matters” over the disputed $4.8 billion dam within the next two weeks.

“Ethiopia is scheduled to begin filling the GERD within the next two weeks, during which time the remaining construction work will continue. It is in this period that the three countries have agreed to reach a final agreement on a few pending matters,” the Ethiopian prime minister’s office said.

Mohamed Besheer, a political studies and international relations expert, told Arab News the agreement is an important step “only if Ethiopia decides to comply with international law. It may be the start of a major crisis in the region if Ethiopia continues the policy of maneuvering and time wasting.”

Halafi, when you are angry , I think , you write a terrible English. I do not know what you are trying to say.
Tarik, I think Eden might have a point. She regularly labels you as you are an Egyptian foot soldier. If that is because of religion, well , that is sad.

Ethiopia should just demand Egypt to pay for the time it postpone to fill the dam. Fair condition.

Mind you there is no such thing as independent websites in egypt thanks to dictator alsissi, their all headlines boldly marked.. hurrah egypt is triumphant and vindicated and africa is standing with us same as our arab brothers.

Kerenite, you accurately pointed out there are no independent journalism in Egypt since the general came to power. Concerning the negotiation about Nile, the Egyptian journalists would be tempted to play the national card.
Here is how you know it is fake. If it was true Egypt would be the last country to broadcast it. Once she bagged concession , she would play it safe. On the contrary, despite warning from African Union the three countries to remain silent, Egypt went on a propaganda offense. Second, the Ethiopian government had a different recollection of what happened.
Recently , I follow the politics of the Nile diligently , and I am convinced the Ethiopian government will not let any country to dictate what it should or not should do regarding Nile. The great majority of Ethiopians at the same time are rallying and will rally behind the government ‘s unwavering stand.
Ethiopia’s desire to elevate her people out of poverty using the dam as a means is a just cause. No country should and will have the authority to tell her otherwise.
