Ethiopia rejects Egypt's stance on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam
Mr Fekahmed Negash, Boundary and Transboundary Rivers Affairs Directorate Director (Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Energy) totally rejected the Egyptian recent official stance on the Ethiopian dam. On interview with Walta information TV March 2014, the Ethiopian official said there nothing new on the Egyptian statement except the usual deceptive propaganda. He further said it is un insult to the international community to come up with such lies about the construction of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.
Egypt recently claimed "Ethiopia recognized the negative effects of the dam on the downstream states, although it previously announced that the dam would not affect the downstream states, Abdel Atti said". Ethiopia never admitted anything like the above statement.
