Ethiopia has rejected Egypt’s proposal over how to operate the Grand Renaissance Dam

Ethiopia has rejected Egypt’s proposal over how to operate the Grand Renaissance Dam, which is being built on the Blue Nile near Ethiopia’s border with Sudan.

Egypt depends on the River Nile for water and is worried that the damn will worsen shortages.

Ethiopia’s Water Minister Seleshi Bekele said Egypt wanted the dam, which is nearly 70% complete, to release 40 billion cubic metres of water every year.
