Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly on Sunday stressed that his country adheres to its historical rights to the waters of the Nile River. “Egypt has clear historical rights in the Nile River, and we do not stand against any development in the Nile Basin countries. This comes amid the nation’s ongoing decade-long dispute with Ethiopia over its Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, which Egypt fears will affect its historical share of Nile River’s waters. The downstream nations fear possible blows to water facilities, agricultural land, and overall availability of Nile water. Negotiations over the dam between Egypt, Ethiopia, and Sudan have stalled for years, with the three parties ultimately failing to reach any concrete agreement.
