GERD: Is Ethiopia Holding Back Flow Info From Egypt?


Egypt did not receive any notification from Ethiopia about filling the reservoir of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), an official source familiar with GERD negotiations said on Saturday. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that the technical negotiations have been halted since political unrest broke out in Ethiopia recently after the resignation of Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn and the declaration of a state of emergency in the country.
