The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) project is still having issues with all three parties involved (Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia) still yet to come to a conclusion on way to settle their dilemma.

However, in a interview with the BBC, Egypt Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli has reaffirmed that Cairo is keen to reach a legally binding agreement on the filling and operation of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).

He noted that the three countries will serve the interests of their peoples if they could reach an agreement on GERD instead of having any differences or conflicts.

He further stated that Egypt always does not oppose any development plans of any country of the Nile Basin provided that such projects cause no harm to Egypt’s water-linked rights.


The problem between all three parties in the GERD has over time made a lot of headline in a negative way as it has showed how difficult it is for African countries to have a way towards finding a solution that will better their countries

We just hope that they find a way to solve such challenge as it us truly affecting the region a lot when it comes to investment from foreign countries as well as create a problem in their bilateral relationship among themselves.
