Egypt’s foreign minister-designate says Ethiopia’s dam top priority

Foreign Minister-designate Nabil Fahmy asserted Sunday that the Ethiopian dam issue will top his agenda in the coming period.

Biblawi was asked to form a new government by interim President Adly Mansour, who was sworn in under a roadmap by the powerful army that ousted elected President Mohammad Morsi and suspended the constitution.
