Thursday 01 July 2021 22:43…….Egypt called on the Security Council to urgently consider the crisis of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, because this crisis could pose a threat to international peace.
According to the “Akhbar Al-Youm” portal, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said in a letter to the council, “The situation constitutes an imminent threat to international peace and security, and requires the council to immediately consider it.”
According to the letter, the Egyptian minister requested the necessity of holding an urgent session under the item of security and peace in Africa.

Thanks and stressed the importance to consider the Appropriate measures to ensure that the crisis is resolved in an equitable manner and in a manner that protects and maintains security and stability in an already fragile region.
butterfly It is noteworthy that Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi warned Ethiopia, last April, of “compromising Egypt’s water rights,” stressing that “all options are open.”
Ethiopia began building the “Renaissance Dam” on the Blue Nile in 2011 with the aim of generating electricity. Egypt fears the impact of the dam on its share of 55.5 billion cubic meters of Nile water; Sudan fears the impact of the dam on the Sudanese dams on the Blue Nile.
All rounds of negotiations, which began about 10 years ago, failed to reach a binding agreement regarding the filling and operation of the dam.
Ethiopia has confirmed on more than one occasion its intention to complete the second filling of the Renaissance Dam in the rainy season, at the beginning of next July, regardless of the conclusion of an agreement with the two downstream countries. Egypt and Sudan consider Ethiopia’s second filling of the Renaissance Dam without reaching an agreement a threat to the national security of the two countries.
