Over the last few years, heated negotiations have left the two countries and their neighboring Sudan in an agreement on how Ethiopia will handle the dam and fill its reservoir, while Egypt will supply scarce water from the Nile.

Ethiopia's Water Minister Celeshi Bekele said the leaders of the two countries came to a consensus to finalize a deal in the next three to three weeks, following the summit of African Union President and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) is being built 15 kilometers (nine miles) from the Blue Nile border, which is the source of much of the Nile's water.

Ethiopia said the $ 4 billion hydropower project with an installed capacity of 6,450 MW is needed for economic development.

The three countries have agreed to give the African solution to the Ethiopian Prime Minister's Office that the Nile and Grand Renaissance Dam are "African problems".

Deal in the African Union brokerage, negotiations have been stalled for months and are meant to resolve the issue without foreign interference.

The Ethiopian Declaration provides assistance and technical assistance to African Union negotiations other than the American Security Council.

He appealed to the Cairo Council for a final diplomatic mission aimed at preventing the filling of the Ethiopia Dam. The council was scheduled to hold a public hearing Monday to discuss the matter.
