Egypt Ramps Up Pressure on Ethiopia

Source: The Middle East Eye published on 19 March 2021 a commentary titled “Will Egypt Go to War with Ethiopia over the Grand Renaissance Dam?” by Mustafa Salama.  

Egypt and Sudan have agreed, contrary to the wishes of Ethiopia, to pursue a mediation of issues surrounding the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam by the AU, EU, US, and UN.  Egypt has also aligned its position closely with Sudan’s increasingly hostile approach towards Ethiopia.  While the author is not predicting war between Egypt and Ethiopia, he suggests it could be a tactic to rally Egyptian domestic support.   0 commentsLabels: Abdel Fattah al-SisiEgyptEthiopiaGERDLibyamediationNile watersQatarSudanTigray RegionTurkey
