Ethiopia stands firm on the Nile issue, while Egyptian media make futile endeavor misguide their people.

The Daily News Egypt published a news article titled “Ethiopia reasserts that GERD will not impose any negative effects on Egypt.”
According to the news, Ethiopian water minister Ato Motuma Mekassa has promised Egypt to limit the negative effect of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) on Egypt and Sudan. He was quoted as saying “We are ready to reduce any negative effect if proven by studies.”
Since I have been following the matter for years, I didn’t buy it. I have seen Egyptian politicians leaking disinformation to the media at the end of many failed negotiations. So I knew this was another one. To my surprise,  Ethiopian water minister Ato Motuma Mekassa was quick to appear on Ethiopian television. He did not directly respond to Egypt’s claim but dismissed it saying, Ethiopia will continue its firm stand on the Nile matter.
