Meles Zenawi plans to visit Egypt

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry has announced that Meles Zenawi is planning to visit Cairo in September. Zenawi’s visit was originally planned for July but was cancelled due to the escalating protests at the time. The Nile Basin negotiations and the situation in Sudan, Libya and Somalia will be the main focus of the talks. Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr said he expects that these negotiations will turn a new page in Egypt’s relations with Ethiopia.

In May 2010 Ethiopia and four upstream countries signed a new treaty in Entebe, Uganda, seeking a more equitable water sharing agreement. Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi and Rwanda have signed the treaty so far in an attempt to end Egypt’s historical control over the Nile’s water.
