Egypt wants to "officially agree" with the Ethiopian dam


Egypt wants to get "formal agreements" that would not diminish the Nile share of Cairo in Ethiopia during the largest hydraulic fence in Africa.

President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi said on Tuesday that journalists "should turn Ethiopia's goodwill into formal agreements" and that the dam would not be used for "political purposes". He said that Egypt was a "positive sign" for the Ethiopian government.

Egypt is worried that a barrier to $ 4.8 billion may reduce the share of the Nile River. Ethiopia says it needs a dam for its economic development.

Two people do not know how quickly a reservoir behind the dam will be replenished and how it will affect Nile's share in Egypt.
