Ethiopia pledges not to reduce Egypt's share of Nile water


(MENAFN) Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed pledged that his country will not reduce Egypt's share of Nile waters, as his country works to complete what will be Africa's largest hydroelectric dam.

Ahmed's comments came in a press conference with Egypt's President Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi in Cairo.

He said "Egypt will receive its share of the Nile waters and we will increase it."

Egypt's president, for his part, says both countries are working to achieve a final agreement over the Renaissance Dam that "secures" Egypt's fair share of Nile waters and helps Ethiopia's development.
