The leaders of Ethiopia and Egypt vowed on Sunday to iron out their differences over a dam Addis Ababa is building on the Nile River that Cairo fears threatens its water supplies.
At Sunday's meeting in Cairo, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed reassured President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi that his country had "no desire to harm the Egyptian people".
His remarks came in a joint press conference in Cairo with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi following their talks on the giant dam that is now being built on the Nile River. The construction of the dam is now being built on the main tributary to Nile River of Egypt without harming any party.
Ahmed, speaking in his native Amharic language, said Ethiopia was committed to ensuring Egypt's share of Nile water. Ethiopia hopes the finished project can transform it into a key energy hub in Africa.
Ethiopia's prime minister has sworn not to "harm" Egypt's share of the Nile, breaking the deadlock in talks over control of Africa's longest river.
Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan have been holding tripartite talks on the dam following "concerns" from Egypt that the Ethiopian dam project reduces the flow of water to Egypt. They also confirmed that leaders from the three nations will meet every six months for consultations.
Abiy is accompanied to Egypt by high level delegation and is expected to hold discussion with Egyptian president Sisi on matters of bilateral relations, trade and regional issues, according to Ethiopian government sources.
Ethiopia will soon complete the dam, underscoring the shifting balance of power from Cairo to the upstream states of Sudan and Ethiopia, the Texas-based Stratfor intelligence firm said in assessment Wednesday.
The two sides agreed to begin outlining an agreement that includes Sudan, and to set up a fund for infrastructure in the three countries.
Egyptian presidents in the past have threatened military force in defense of their share of the Nile and against any attempts to build dams on it.
