CAIRO — Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia have failed again to make progress on their Nile dispute as Ethiopia works to complete a massive upstream dam, an Egyptian official said Tuesday.

Egypt fears the Renaissance Dam will cut into its share of the river, which provides virtually all the freshwater for the arid country of 100 million people. Ethiopia, which has the same sized population, says the dam is essential for its economic development.

Technical talks among irrigation ministers of the three countries in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, last week ended with no deal, Hossam el-Emam, a spokesman for Egypt’s Irrigation Ministry, told The Associated Press.

Ethiopia and Sudan still insist on modifications to a technical report by a French firm commissioned to assess the dam’s impact, he said.

“Such modifications get it out of its context,” he said, adding that there may be another round of talks May 15. “We hope to make a breakthrough in the coming meeting … Time is not in our favor,” he said.

Last month, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry warned that Egypt “will not accept the status quo” and “continues to defend the interests of its people regarding the Nile by several means,” without elaborating.

The $4.8 billion dam is now 63 percent finished, and Ethiopia hopes to become a key energy hub in Africa upon its completion.

The main sticking point with Egypt concerns how quickly the reservoir behind the dam is filled, and the impact that will have downstream.

Egypt has received the lion’s share of the Nile’s waters under decades-old agreements seen by other Nile basin nations as unfair. Past Egyptian presidents have warned that any attempt to build dams along the Nile will be met with military action, but Egypt’s current leader, President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, has ruled that out.

Sudan appears to be taking Ethiopia’s side in the negotiations, and has revived a longstanding border dispute with Egypt.

    Actually egypt has zero share of nile river. Its share is limited to what ever the other riparian countries are willing to donate her only.

    If ethiopia has a share in badme though by the same argument egypt will also have not only a share but a lions share in nile.

    You probably don’t know what Susan Rays advised Meles Zenawi?” If tigray joining eritrea is good. If not tigray must join to Sudan “. Also gave him worry some that, eritrea May only accept the Agame region but not Adwa. In my opinion, the honest Agame are welcomed. In other words, all western tigray is already on sale for the sake of dam and obviously marketing Sheramamut.

      I feel deeply sad for Aboy Taferre and Adey Higush,however this scenario is all too familiar for those of us who lived it, brothers and sisters from the same household killed each other and the parents who swallowed the bitter pill and went to their graves,some who lost 5-6 kids on both fronts,the sad thing is, decades later the same people who incited the family against each other are repeating the same crime.It is a nation drenched with innocent blood,until those who spilled this blood and the ones who contributed indirectly are brought to justice and tried by the Eritrean people,the souls of the dead wont rest and the land will give in and continue to swallow those standing like a quicksand.The Eritrean youth did’t start dying today,we have already buried tens of thousands 14-18 y/o decades ago,I wonder where their poor parents are? mine are gone,thank you Lord! they don’t have to witness this apocalyptic mayhem.

          K. Tewolde unless you free your self from years of malice propaganda of Jebha/shaebya/Kenisha….etc you will never regain normalcy and will never see events through a right prism. One evedence that those self appointed leaders of TPLF/EPLF were deceiving and lying us is – they both betrayed their respective population for the sole purposed of Personal Power, if you keep on trusting the Ghedli project and expect different out come then Einstein definition of “insanity” has Occurred and every thing ends there! No need to wast our time!

            I think you should answer my questions honestly instead of circumventing them or passing them to Einstein.Rest assured,I very proud of fighting for my country,however I was always an independent thinker,hard to indoctrinate,if I had joined the EPLF whome I had easier access,I wouldn’t have lasted there too long.As a matter of fact,I am open to new and unconventional ways of resolving this Eritrean/Ethiopian issue once and for all as long as it brings both people together,honors their mutual wishes and brings peace,cooperation and prosperity.Fact is, like you said,the self imposed clan who is ruling on both sides of the border got to go and the people of the 2 nations have to elect their leaders democratically and chart their own future.Would that align our prism? I am not dogmatic or rigid as you think and I don’t think you are the Bajet or Mesfin kind either.
