FM Gedu Meet With Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt

Ethiopia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Gedu Andargachew held talks with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt in Cairo yesterday, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia.

During the talks, the two sides exchanged views on bilateral relations, common regional and international issues.

Gedu also conveyed a message to Sisi from Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, “stressing his country’s great interest in boosting all aspects of bilateral relations and enhancing friendship ties with Egypt,” the Egyptian presidency said in a statement.

The Ethiopian prime minister asserted in the message “the importance of close coordination between Ethiopia and Egypt to achieve stability in Africa and the region, including supporting the Sudanese people to overcome the current challenges.”

Abiy also stressed his keenness on resuming tripartite talks between Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan to reach an agreement on the rules of filling and operating the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).

Upstream Nile Basin country Ethiopia and downstream Sudan eye massive benefits from the GERD construction, while downstream Egypt is concerned it might affect its 55.5-billion-cubic-meter annual share of the Nile River water.

In March 2015, the leaders of the three countries signed an initial cooperation deal on the principles of sharing the river water and the construction of the GERD, which will be Africa’s largest dam upon completion
