Foreign Ministry sent a formal document to all Egyptian embassies abroad about Egypt's stance over Ethiopia's Renaissance Dam.
The Egyptian embassies are asked to contact foreign governments and media outlets to clarify the Egyptian stance over the controversial dam, said spokesman for the Foreign Ministry Badr Abdel Atti in statements on Tuesday 25/3/2014.
The document underlined Egypt's firm position on the Nile water file, which is based on the principles of mutual benefit among all parties.
The Ethiopian side does not provide any information about the dam, Abdel Atti said.
Ethiopia recognized the negative effects of the dam on the downstream states, although it previously announced that the dam would not affect the downstream states, Abdel Atti said.
The negotiations are necessary in order to avoid any serious developments that might affect Egypt's national security, he added.
Mega Damming of the Life giving waters of Ethiopia. This process is menacing the existence of the inhabitants of the region by drying the sources and lakes. The main reason advertised for damming is for production of Electricity and exporting energy. This could be done by small human level dams.The underlying reason is to the irrigation for the great land grabbing for cash crop exportation for financial speculators. Moreover, such mega projects leads to undue water crisis.
