Dam dis­pute drags on

The Sunday Independent - - World -

CAIRO: Egypt has crit­i­cised re­ports blam­ing it for the fail­ure of re­cent talks with Ethiopia and Su­dan to reach an agree­ment over Ethiopia’s mas­sive dam un­der con­struc­tion on a Nile River trib­u­tary and called for a new round of talks to be held in Cairo.

Last week’s dis­cus­sions between the three coun­tries were the lat­est at­tempt to re­solve the dis­pute over the dam’s down­stream im­pact.

Egypt fears the Grand Ethiopian Re­nais­sance Dam would im­pact its share of the Nile River, which is a life­line for the coun­try’s 100 mil­lion peo­ple.
