Addis Ababa(ANN)-The Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, said that his country will start filling the reservoir of the Renaissance Dam to take advantage of the heavy rain season, stressing that it will not cause any harm to Egypt.

“Our disagreement with Egypt over the operation period and filling the dam will come to the African house,” Abiy said in comments by Al Arabia television. “We will not harm Egypt and we will start filling the dam to take advantage of the heavy rainy season.”

The Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation had commented on the reports that Ethiopia had started in the process of secretly filling the “Renaissance Dam”, despite the progress of negotiations between the three countries (Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt) currently.

The spokesman for the Egyptian Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, Engineer Mohamed El Sebaei, said that “there is no information about that matter,” adding that “whoever talks about the start of the Renaissance Dam Dam during the current period, is asked about that, and what is proven to be true or not.”

Al-Sibai pointed out that negotiations are continuing between Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia, but there is nothing new until now, expressing his hope that “today’s meetings will come out with something.”

The leader of the “Freedom and Change” forces in Sudan, Muhammad Wadaa, stated that the Ethiopian government began to fill the Renaissance Dam secretly, which caused a shortage of the water share in Sudan, noting that “all evidence confirms this and that Sudan complained about the lack of water coming to it in This July, stressing that “this step exacerbated the electricity crisis,” according to the Sudanese newspaper, “Al-Rakouba”.

Meanwhile, professor of geology and water resources at Cairo University, Dr. Abbas Sharqi, today, Monday, relied on “a satellite image, revealing the truth of the process of filling the Renaissance Renaissance Dam”, as published by Al-Masry Al-Youm.
