Ethiopia seeks clarification on the statement President Trump made on the GERD
H.E. Gedu Andargachew, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, today summoned the United States Ambassador, H.E. Mike Raynor, to seek clarification on the remarks made by the US President regarding the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) during his telephone conversation with the Prime Ministers of the Republic of the Sudan and the State of Israel.
Minister Gedu underscored the statement [made by President Trump] on the GERD and the negotiation process is misleading and wrong as the GERD does not stop the flow of the Nile waters.
He said the incitement of war between Ethiopia and Egypt from a sitting US president neither reflects the longstanding partnership and strategic alliance between Ethiopia and the United States, nor is acceptable in International Law governing interstate relations.
The Minister further informed the Ambassador that Ethiopia has never, and will not in the future succumb to threats to its sovereignty and will be committed to continue the trilateral negotiations under the framework of the African Union.
