Moscow ready to exert all possible efforts to resolve GERD issue, says envoy
Published in Ahram Online on 05 - 08 - 2021

Russian Ambassador in Cairo Georgiy Borisenko asserted that his country was ready to exert all possible efforts to reach a solution to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) issue, noting that Moscow fully understands the deep concern of "its Egyptian friends".
In a statement posted on the Russian Embassy Facebook page, Borisenko said Egypt's water security is an existential matter as the River Nile was and still be the first source of water for over 100 million people.
He asserted that Russia is calling for a just solution to the dispute over the dam, putting into consideration the interests of Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia.
The Russian diplomat also voiced belief that "neighbours" should seek consensus solutions that provide a chance for the implementation of national programs for development in an atmosphere of good neighborhood, peace and stability.
Borisenko affirmed that Egypt has a big influence on the international arena as it is a pioneering country in the Middle East and Africa and a cornerstone for stability in the restive region.
Ethiopia unilaterally implemented the second phase of filling the GERD in July, a step that Egypt and Sudan has warned against due to the absence of a legally-binding agreement on the filling and operation of the dam.
Egypt and Sudan have warned against consequences of the unilateral filling of the dam, citing concerns against their water rights and people's lives.
Borisenko, according to the embassy statement, also praised the launching of the"New Republic" during Egypt's celebrations of the 69th anniversary of the July 1952 Revolution.
Borisenko said Egypt is going on with steady steps towards achieving sustainable development and democracy, praising the huge achievements reached in the various sectors including economy, social care, science, education and culture.
