(Worthy News) - Irrigation ministers of three key Nile Basin countries were meeting Friday in Sudan's capital, seeking to resolve differences over Ethiopia's soon-to-be-finished Blue Nile dam, which Cairo claims threatens its water supply.
According to the spokesman of Egypt's irrigation ministry, Muhamed El-Sebai, the meeting of the ministers from Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia would last two days.
Egypt fears Ethiopia's $5 billion project, which is set to be Africa's largest hydraulic dam, could reduce its share of the Nile River, a lifeline for Egypt's 100 million people. [ Source: VOA News (Read More...) ]
