ADDIS ABABA–Ethiopia has the right to embark on filling the Grand Ethiopia Renaissance Dam without the interference of a third party in line with the principles of equitable and reasonable utilization without causing any significant harm to other riparian countries, said a Ph.D candidate Bamlak Yideg, a political scientist at the University of Gondar.
As Ethiopia has been working day in and day out by the sweat of its brow, everything regarding the GERD is heading in the right direction and the desired goal is being achieved. “Furthermore, as the government of Ethiopia has been placing emphasis on the dam more than ever before, the intended target is being achieved despite some gaps to be bridged,” Dr. Bamlak told The Ethiopian Herald.
“It is crystal clear that the three countries Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt had reached into an agreement concerning the Declaration of Principles on equitable and reasonable utilization of the Nile,” he added.
In the same way, in addition to attaching importance to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, the government of Ethiopia should place emphasis on some groups who make an effort to throw cold water on the efforts of the government now and again.
