Finally the statement came out in English

Addis Ababa, February 3, 2020 (FBC) –Ethiopia is building the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) because it has the full rights to build it, said Gedu Andargachew, Minister of Foreign Affairs.

The Foreign Minister made the remark here today at a press conference he issued together with Dr Engineer Seleshi Bekele, Minister of Water, Irrigation and Energy.

Ethiopia has the full rights to lift its citizens out of poverty using its natural resources. It is building the dam in such a way as to not cause a significant harm to the downstream countries, he said.

Though Ethiopia is building the dam by taking into account this issue, it entered into talks in order to build trust and confidence among downstream countries, he said.

After the series of talks held on a number of issues over the past years, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt managed to narrow their differences, the Foreign Minister said.

Following the talks held in Washington, the three countries had also reached agreements on many issues. However, there are also technical and legal issues that have not yet been agreed, he said.

Ethiopia believes that these issues would be resolved through dialogue and some of them need more time for consultation because “we want the negotiation to preserve Ethiopia’s interest,” he said.

There is an interest from both the Egypt and the United States for the agreement to be concluded soon, he said, adding, Ethiopia, however, need more time to hold consultation with its people.

የሞሪንጋን ቅጠል የተከልኩት በእጄ
የሽፈራውን ቅጠል የተከልኵት በእጄ
ጤናዪን ከነሣኝ ልንቀለው ከደጄ!…


ጳጳስ ካልጠፋ በሃገር በቤቱ
ስብሃት እያሉ ምነው የማይፈቱ?


በፍቅር ተጋግዘው ካልደገፉት በቀር
ትንሽ ጎጆ አይቆምም እንኳን ትልቅ ሃገር


አምናም ጾመን ነበር
ካቻምናም እንደዚያው
ዘንድሮስ ፈሠግን የምንፈታው በዛ…

ከአንተነህ መርዕድ

የኢትዮጵያ ህዝብ እስከአሁን መሪዎቹን መርጦ አያውቅም። ሁሉም በጉልበት ትክሻው ላይ ተፈራርቀው ወጥተውበታል፤ እየተካኩም አሁን ላለበት ከዓለም የመጨረሻነትና የርሃብ ተምሳሌትነት አድርሰውታል፤ አድርሳችሁታል። ያለፈ ታሪክ እየቆፈርን ማን ምን ሠራ እያሉ ለመዘባነን በአሁኑ ወቅት ህሊና ላለው አንገብጋቢ ጥያቄ አይመስለኝም። በእጃችን ላይ ያለውን ዐይኑን አፍጥጦ የመጣውንና የብዙ ሺዎችን ህይወት ለመቅጠፍ “ሀ’’ ብሎ የጀመረውን ርሃብ ለመግታት ደመኛ ጠላቶችም ቢሆኑ የሚተባበሩበት ወቅት ነውና። ከየትም ወገን ይምጣ ርሃብን ለፖለቲካ ፍጆታ የመጠቀምን ያህል ጭካኔ ከቶ የለም።
