The Ethiopian Parliament is discussing a draft resolution presented by Karen Bass, chair of the African Affairs Committee in Parliament, that “calls on the government to take a fair position in the negotiations of the Nahsa Dam in a manner that preserves the rights of Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt.”

In her project, Bass expressed her “concern about the circumstances that accompanied the negotiations between the three parties, which prompted the United States to reduce foreign aid to Addis Ababa,” noting the negative impact that this would have on the Ethiopian community, according to the Black Star newspaper. .

The newspaper said, “The draft resolution will encourage the African Union to continue to play a constructive role in the negotiations, in order to reach an agreement that guarantees not to harm the interests of any of the parties.”

On July 21, the Ethiopian government announced the beginning of the first filling of the Renaissance Dam, before returning to say that the filling of the dam came against the background of heavy rainfall in the Ethiopian plateau, which helped in the process of filling the dam unintentionally, but the completion of the first filling of the Renaissance Dam, without Reaching an agreement with Egypt and Sudan, angered the two countries.

Despite the signing of a declaration of principles between Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia on the issue of the Renaissance Dam in March 2015, which adopted dialogue and negotiation as a way to reach an agreement between the three countries on the issue of the Nile water and the Renaissance Dam, negotiations have not resulted in an agreement since then.
