Egipto e Etiópia discordam sobre barragem no Nilo Azul

By Mike Tyler

September 17, 2019 - O Egipto diz que a Etiópia “rejeitou liminarmente“ o seu plano para
explorar a Grande Barragem Renascença Etíope (GBRE) de $4.000 milhões que a Etiópia está a construir no Nilo Azul.

Egypt also dismissed Ethiopia’s own proposal as “unfair and inequitable”, Reuters said.

The comments come as Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan met on Sunday and Monday for their first talks over the dam in more than a year.

The long-running dispute centres on the filling and operation of what will be Africa's largest hydroelectric dam.

Egypt fears the dam could reduce its share of the Nile River, which serves as a lifeline for the country’s 100 million people. Ethiopia has roughly the same population and says the dam will help its economic development.
