Egypt has announced the end of a round of negotiations regarding the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), stating that Ethiopia has reneged on its commitments related to the dam crisis.

The Egyptian Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation revealed that the recent negotiations, held in Addis Ababa over the weekend, involving delegations from Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia, did not yield significant progress.

Egypt claims that Ethiopia has backed away from several agreements reached among the three countries during the negotiation process and continues to reject any proposed middle-ground solutions or agreed-upon technical arrangements that could address Ethiopian concerns regarding the dam without compromising the rights and interests of Egypt and Sudan.

The Egyptian delegation remains committed to negotiating seriously and transparently to reach a legally binding agreement on the rules for filling and operating the GERD that safeguards Egypt’s national interests, water security, and utilization while also serving the declared interests of the Ethiopian side.
