AP Interview: Ethiopia to fill disputed dam, deal or no deal

Published Fri Jun 19 2020 18:40:49 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
It’s a clash over water usage that Egypt calls an existential threat and Ethiopia calls a lifeline for millions out of poverty. Just weeks remain before the filling of Africa’s most powerful hydroelectric dam might begin, and tense talks between the countries on its operation have yet to reach a deal. In an interview with The Associated Press, Ethiopian Foreign Minister Gedu Andargachew declared that his country will go ahead and start filling the $4.6 billion Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam next month, even without an agreement. It’s not mandatory to reach one, he said.
