The president’s statements were made during a telephone conversation with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Egyptian Presidential spokesman Bassam Rady stated in the text.

Egypt and Sudan have repeatedly expressed their desire to continue the talks on the project under the auspices of the African Union in order to reach a legally binding agreement.

Any pact must protect our country’s water security, guarantee the interests of all parties and preserve regional stability, the head of State stressed.

Tension escalated in July after Ethiopia announced the start of the second stage of filling of the dam, a decision questioned by Cairo and Khartoum, whose governments claim that this action should not have started without an agreement between the parties because they fear a substantial drop in their access to water from the Nile River.

The GERD, which will produce some 6,450 megawatts, has been a source of conflict since its construction began a decade ago.
