Trump: The situation is dangerous and Egypt may blow up the...

US President Donald and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdouk called today, Friday, to reach an amicable solution to the dispute over the Renaissance Dam between Sudan and Egypt on the one hand, and Ethiopia on the other hand.

The dam, which Ethiopia has been building since 2010 on the Blue Nile, has strained relations between Addis Ababa and Cairo, which are concerned about controlling the flow of water.

The US President accused Ethiopia of violating an agreement he was preparing to resolve the conflict, and said that since then, he had cut millions of dollars in aid to Addis Ababa.

“You cannot blame Egypt for feeling a little annoyed,” Trump said in a phone call with the leaders of Sudan and Israel to celebrate a diplomatic breakthrough between the two countries.

At that time he seemed to anticipate the occurrence of violence that would ensue.

Trump, who made the call to reporters at the White House, said he also told Egypt the same thing, adding that the situation is dangerous because Egypt will not be able to live in this way, adding that Cairo might end up “blowing up that dam.”

Ethiopia wants to build the dam to expand its energy exports, while Egypt depends almost exclusively on the Nile water for agriculture, industry and local use.

Egypt and Sudan are seeking to reach a legally binding agreement that guarantees adequate flows of water and a legal mechanism to resolve disputes before the dam starts operating.

In August, however, Ethiopia celebrated the first phase of filling the dam.
