Addis Ababa does not respect Egyptian water concern, said Egypt’s Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly.

Madbouly statements came during the 2nd edition of the Cairo Water Week (CWW), which kicked off on Sunday under the theme “Responding to Water Scarcity,” under the auspices of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.

Prime Minister pointed to the recent negotiations over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) saying that the dam’s construction is not based in real environmental studies.

“Egypt requests the participation of a fourth international party as a mediator after the Ethiopian side rejected our proposal,” he added.
