Egypt says US should use leverage, pressure on Ethiopia to resolve dam issue


A senior Egyptian diplomat said Tuesday that the Biden administration is not putting enough pressure on Ethiopia to help resolve the controversy surrounding Addis Ababa’s construction of a controversial dam on the Nile River. Zahran was referring to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), which Egypt wants to be filled slowly. Two different US envoys stepped down in what sources believe was the result of frustration at the lack of backing from senior administration officials. “The United States has an important role to play. The United States has leverage, and it is always advised for the US to use that leverage in terms of bringing goodness and righteousness to the region.”Read more: Ethiopia to start generating electricity from Nile dam
