Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said on Sunday 1/3/2020 the international law stipulates that unilateral procedures may not be taken by any party on cross-border Rivers.
He reiterated that the joint statement released by the ministries of foreign affairs and water resources came in response to the statement issued by Ethiopia on filling the Renaissance Dam.
The minister urged to comply with the Agreement on Declaration of Principles signed in 2015, noting that Ethiopia will violate this deal in case it fills the dam without the consent of other parties.
He stressed that Egypt honestly wants to reach a final agreement on this issue and works to protect and prioritize the people’s interests.
