Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry considered that the Ethiopian talk about the Renaissance Dam is full of prevarication and lack of credibility and does not bode well for the existence of a political will to reach an agreement.
In a statement to “Sada Al-Balad” channel, Shoukry said that “his meeting with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, witnessed the discussion of various regional and global issues.”
He added, “The meeting witnessed consultations on Libya’s developments, and the latest developments of the Renaissance Dam were presented after the issuance of the presidential statement by the Security Council, and the meeting dealt with the files of Syria and Yemen.”
He stressed that “Egypt’s vision was presented at the United Nations General Assembly through the speech delivered by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, and his emphasis on the importance of joint action and talking about regional issues.”
He explained that “the meeting with Guterres led to an understanding about Egypt’s position on the Ethiopian dam, and that the Security Council stressed the importance of reaching a binding solution on the issue of the dam.”
He continued, “The Ethiopian discourse is all evasive and lacking in credibility and does not bode well for the existence of a political will to reach an agreement.”
