(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy warned on Saturday his country would resolutely tackle the Nile River water dossier, but it would capitalize on all available diplomatic chances in this regard.

Fahmy, who is accompanying an Egyptian cabinet delegation led by Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab to Equatorial Guinea, said dialogue, rather than confrontation, is the right way to resolve differences over a controversial Ethiopian dam over the Nile.

"Dialogue is the solution and there is no zero-sum game in a vital issue like the Nile River water," he was quoted by Egypt's official news agency, MENA as saying.

But, the minister regretted that his country had not yet received any practical response from the Ethiopian side to serious negotiations over the issue.


He noted that #Uganda and #Tanzania had suggested unofficial dialogue sessions among all Nile Basin countries to find a solution to the problem, but no concrete steps had been taken in this regard so far.

Egypt is particularly dependent on water supply from the Nile, and its growing population has been placing that supply under increasing strain.

Ethiopia's underway Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam is a USD-4.7-billion project that #Ethiopia says will eventually provide 6,000 megawatts of power.

The Egyptian prime minister is in #EquatorialGuinea as part of an African tour that already taken him to #Chad and #Tanzania with a view to promoting Egyptian-African relations.
