Ahmed Abu Zeid, spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has announced the success of the mediation meeting regarding the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, with President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi hailing the "breakthrough".

Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia have agreed to create a scientific committee dedicated to the mega-dam built by Ethiopia on the Blue Nile, thus ending months of deadlock on their discussions.

Global agreements signed in 1929 and 1959, Egypt is guaranteed to 87% of the Nile waters. Ethiopia has stressed that it does not intend to harm Egypt, and "that Egypt's share [of water] will not be affected".
