Egyptian-European business council headed by Mohamed Aboul Enein will host later today Wednesday a seminar at Farah boat in Giza on the developments of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) crisis.

The seminar will be attended by a galaxy of international law experts, former irrigation ministers, as well as Egypt’s former ambassadors to Addis Ababa.

It is scheduled that they will discuss Egypt's view regarding the GERD negotiations developments, and the Egyptians’ suffering because of water shortage that would have a negative impact on the development process in Egypt.

It’s worthy to note that the parliament will host Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and Irrigation Minister Mohamed Abdel-Ati today to address MPs on GERD negotiations developments.

During his meeting with members and representatives of the Euro-Mediterranean Parliamentary Assembly at the UN Headquarters in New York a few days ago, Aboul Enein revealed details on the Renaissance Dam crisis and its negative impact on Egypt.

He stressed that President Sisi raised the Egyptian vision of the issue, exposing Ethiopia’s non-cooperative and intransigent manner, disrespecting all international treaties and agreements signed between the Nile Basin countries.

“Ethiopia has ignored the Egyptian proposal on the Renaissance Dam and insists on filling the dam in just three years, damaging the country downstream and refusing to extend the period to seven years to limit the impact of water retention on Egypt and its share of water,” Aboul El-Enein emphasized.
