The feeder, which merges with the White Nile in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, gives around 80% of the hard and fast movement of the stream and Ethiopia believes it to be a “essential disgracefulness” that it can’t misuse this trademark resource, Mr Zerihun said.
If Ethiopia agrees to allowing a specific volume of water to stream to Egypt reliably then this will “confirm a pioneer benefit of the most downstream country, Egypt. It takes after neo-dominion and that is unacceptable,” he added.
Essentially, what Ethiopia is censuring Egypt for is expecting to keep up the stream that was guaranteed in 1959.
Ethiopia says that in the second year of filling it will convey at any rate 31 billion cubic meters through the Gerd, anyway past that it can’t be appended to a specific number.
Keeping up the movement of a set volume of water to Egypt paying little notice to the precipitation model could suggest that the Gerd will stop working during deferred droughts.
While Egypt is scared by the chance of not knowing how much water it will get.
