Egypt says Ethiopia’s remarks about war over GERD “totally unacceptable”

Egypt said the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s remarks about his country’s readiness to go for war over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) are “totally unacceptable and send negative messages.”

In a Tuesday statement, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry expressed its concerns over such remarks that referred to “military options,” noting that it violates the values of the African Union, especially that Egypt did not address the issue of the dam at any time only through negotiations based on international law and international legitimacy.

“Egypt always relies on negotiations as a way to settle disputes over the GERD between the three countries, with transparency and good intention over many years,” the statement read.
