Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said, Wednesday evening, that there is an opportunity to reach an agreement on the Renaissance Dam “if sincere intentions are provided.”
In his interview with a local channel, he added that Egypt “hopes that there will be a political will on the Ethiopian side to sign an agreement on the Renaissance Dam.”
He stressed that “all state institutions together are well aware of how to deal with all possible scenarios in the file of the Renaissance Dam,” stressing that this file “is an existential issue for Egypt.”
And Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi stressed on Wednesday that a solution must be found regarding the Renaissance Dam crisis, far from any unilateral approach.
He added during a press conference that he stressed “the necessity of seeking to reach as soon as possible a binding legal agreement that regulates the process of filling and operating the Renaissance Dam, far from any unilateral approach that seeks to impose a fait accompli and ignore the basic rights of peoples.”
