President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has said he is ready to go to Ethiopia if the visit would be in Egypt’s best interests. He made his remark during a meeting with media figures and journalists Sunday, when asked about the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.

El-Sisi added that Egypt appreciated Ethiopian efforts towards development, as long as they would not negatively affect Egypt’s interests.

A new round of talks between Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan about the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam and its impact on Egypt will start 26 August in Khartoum.

“We want them (the Ethiopians) while building the dam to take into consideration that there should not be a negative impact on Egypt during the time the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam’s reservoir is full, or during operations of the dam,” the Egyptian president said, adding that he was promised by the Ethiopian president that Egyptian interests would not be harmed because of the dam.

Egypt has expressed concerns regarding the Ethiopian dam since 2013, especially regarding Egypt’s share of Nile River waters. Ethiopia maintains that Egypt’s share won’t be affected negatively by the dam.

    Now I am 100% sure, that speaking from historical and pragmatic terms of leadership, By far this Ethiopian government is the most smartest and constructive government we Ethiopians ever had.
    Ethiopia now officially building the biggest hydro dam ever build in the continent of Africa, in the terms of its capacity of the hydro power output will equal to the America’s Hoover dam.
    This also the main reason why we most Ethiopians love this government, not necessary because it’s our government, rather they are potently positive thinkers, they mean what say and do what promise to do.

    @washington DC: have you ever know what it means by positive thinking? Who the hell are you talking this shit on be half of Ethiopians??? you can represent only yourself. Don’t write your crap and shitty statistics about saying ”we most Ethiopians”. You weyane thugs don’t have any idea what logic and statistics are means. You know only jumping here and there like as you used to jump in Dedebit jungle like pointless monkey. I think, Human evolution was started in Dedebit jungle so that you still more close to monkey than human being.That is why you are way behind in understanding a simple logic.
