Sisi: Egypt favours negotiations over a military solution to resolve Nile dam crisis: Al-Sisi

Egypt is keen to deal with the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) crisis through negotiations, rather than the military route, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said.

Sisi made these remarks during inaugurating Al-Robeky Leather City, 54km (33.5 miles) east of Cairo.

The president said that Egypt supports Ethiopia as it undertakes its development projects, however,  he added that this support would not come at the expense of Egypt’s share of River Nile water.
