<h4>Abdel Rahim Ali, an Egyptian journalist and MP, said that the Egyptian-Sudanese-Ethiopian agreement on the <a href="https:\/\/see.news\/ethiopian-prime-minister-gerd-construction-will-continue\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam<\/a>\u00a0(GERD) proves once again the ability and efficiency of Egyptian diplomacy to manage foreign files with all professionalism.<\/h4>\r\nIn his statements, Ali asserted that this success in the file of GERD is added to the record of historical successes of Egyptian diplomacy since ancient times.\r\n\r\nHe added that there is a consensus between the leaders of Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia to develop a final legal agreement binding on all parties regarding the rules for filling and operating the GERD.\r\n\r\nThis confirms Egypt\u2019s right and strong position, as well as its distinguished relations with the African Union.\r\n\r\nThe MP expressed that they agreed not to take any unilateral measures, including filling the dam before reaching an agreement. This agreement represents a focal point in the success of the negotiations.\r\n\r\n"Egypt has worked in the past weeks on all political and diplomatic levels to defend its right to the waters of the Nile," Ali said. "Egypt was able to transfer the issue to the <a href="https:\/\/www.un.org\/en\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">United Nations<\/a> Security Council as a competent authority. The issue has received support from most of the world`s countries, led by the United States of America."\r\n\r\nThe MP praised the efforts of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shoukry, and all officials of the file who worked with efficiency and sincerity to preserve Egypt's historical rights in the Nile.\r\n\r\nHe pointed out that it is an existential issue for the Egyptian people and therefore an agreement must be reached that preserves the interests of the three countries before filling the dam.
