Ethiopia on Tuesday issued a statement regarding the fourth round of GERD negotiation with Egypt and Sudan  which was taking place in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa between December 17-19. 

While the statement made the point that the four rounds of negotiations were helpful “to have an in-depth discussion on the major issues of difference,”  it accused Egypt of having a “.. colonial era mentality and erected roadblocks against efforts toward convergence.” 

The full statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia is featured below : 

“Press Statement on the 4th Round of Trilateral Negotiation on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD)

Ethiopia, Egypt and the Sudan conducted the fourth round of trilateral negotiation on 17-19 December 2023 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. These four rounds of negotiations have been conducted following the understanding reached between H.E. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) of Ethiopia, and H.E. President Abdel Fatah el Sisi of Egypt on 13 July 2023.

The two leaders guided their respective officials, among other things, to do all the necessary efforts to finalize the rules and guidelines on the first filling and annual operation of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). The negotiations have helped the three countries to have an in-depth discussion on the major issues of difference.

During these four rounds, Ethiopia endeavored and keenly engaged with the two lower riparian countries to address the major issues of difference and reach an amicable agreement. Egypt, in contrast, maintained colonial era mentality and erected roadblocks against efforts toward convergence.

The negotiations on the guidelines and rules on the first filling and annual operation of the GERD is meant to enhance confidence and build trust among the three countries. It is not meant to foreclose Ethiopia`s rights on the utilization of the waters of the Nile. Ethiopia would, thus, like to make it abundantly clear that it will continue to utilize its water resources to meet the needs of the present and future generations based on the principle of equitable and reasonable utilization.

The Agreement on the Declaration of Principles of 2015 signed by the three countries provides the basis for this negotiation. 

Moreover, the African Union, which remains seized of the matter since 2020, facilitated a platform that provides the three countries an opportunity to exchange views in order to reach an amicable solution.

After the conclusion of the fourth round of the negotiation, Egypt has issued a statement that violates the UN Charter and the Constitutive Act of the African Union. Ethiopia also rejects the misrepresentation of its positions by Egypt.

Ethiopia remains committed to reach an amicable and negotiated settlement that addresses the interests of the three countries and looks forward the resumption of the negotiation.”

    Ethiopia is dreaming

    The Egyptian Leaders will dig at everything to have its way on the NILE RIVER

    Please, do not expect the Egyptian leaders. to have. positive attitude upon the Black People. and Black l easters.

    NEVER!!!

    As the Ethiopian. saying goese: Translation: ‘Don’t you have a dead. close relative ‘!?!?!?

    Egypt has. blind eye-sight and deep. prejudice over the BLACK RACE. in TOTALITY. FULL STOP

    Dear Ethiopian Leaders: What you are doing at the conference is glaring ‘CHEWANET’ in the Ethiopian language >>>Amharic

    Unfortunately, Ethiopian leaders are physically. facing unpolished meeting compatriots that has to be dealt against.

    It is a challenge but worth trying of the solution.

    For sure, there can NEVER be civilized — again, NEVER BE — a meeting with deeply racist individuals.

    Diplomatically, you may try, but the attempt will be gone with the wind.

    Dear Ethiopian Leadership: No one one will envy your. situation that you are facing.

    Do your best, with humble pride, for yourselves and ALSO FOR THE EVERLASTING. HISTORY. OF ANCIENT ETHIOPIA.

    May the GOOD LORD. help you to gather your STRENGTH for the Agenda of the Meeting that you are undertaking.

    ———————-WE SHALL. SEE —————-

  2. Listen up you fool abds/niggers!

    This is el-Sisi’s mouthpiece. My Most Powerful President has sent me to present you in person his final ultimatum regarding the GERD Dam. He has ordered you to evacuate the entire area where the dam is located including the designated reservoir by the end of this month of December, 2023. He has ordered you to turn in all operating tools now. The most feared Egyptian armed forces will then take control of the dam on January 1, 2024. So stop dragging your lazy black asses and start moving now, as we speak. You have been talking up to your owner. An abd/nigger is not expected to talk up to his master like you have been doing for the last 12 years. Now your master is back on the field and you better do what he is asking to do without any complaint. He also has the following message to Oromos and Amharas. It goes:
    ‘My Oromo and Amhara servants!
    You have been mistreated for the last 150 years by a ruling class made of Amhara and Oromo individuals. Finally I will be there to wipe your tears and bring you freedom and peace as my abds. I have instructed the commanders of my indomitable army to wipe every Oromo and Amhara that will stand on their way off the face of the earth. I will then come there to watch you jumping jack flash for me every time I sneeze. I am coming for you!!’
    Signed: Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, The Most Powerful President In The History of World!!!!
