Ethiopia has no legal obligation to be bound by Nile water-sharing agreements between Egypt and Sudan #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber Click To Tweet


The GERD should be promoted under the shared lens of furthering all of the 17 UN SDGs for the region, establishing an element of trust needed for effective cooperation. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr @EUSR_Weber @LaetitiaBader Click To Tweet


The agreement reached between Ethiopian Monarch and the British Monarch in 1902 has little relevance once that colony ceases to exist. Secondly, the agreement does not bind Ethiopia from doing anything within its own territory and waterways. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @KenRoth Click To Tweet


Ethiopia has made it clear that it is not bound by any colonial agreement established by Egypt, Sudan, or other entities without its participation. Therefore, it cannot be held accountable for violation of agreements it was not a party to. #GERD Click To Tweet


The 1902 agreement, which Egypt claims restricts Ethiopia’s use of the Nile, merely prohibits it from completely blocking the Nile flow—an impossible feat, both historically and prospectively. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @amnest @BradSherman @UKParliament Click To Tweet


The Nile is Abay, Atbara, Sobat, and many other names, and belongs not to 1 or even 3 but to 11 countries who all share a unique bond as enablers and shapers of some of the world’s greatest civilizations. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @EU_Commission Click To Tweet


Regarding the GERD truth and common sense are what’s needed, not information operations, cyber warfare and the beating of war drums as has happened before. #GERD # AFRICAN_DAM @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @IWAHQ @USAmbUN @CanadaFP Click To Tweet


It’s become puzzling; though through glimpses in Egyptian government media, Cairo’s problems seem to be Ethiopia’s reemergence and revitalization and not genuine concerns about water security. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF @trussliz Click To Tweet


Having been denied all assistance from the 1960 to 2009, the Ethiopian people funded the GERD themselves. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UKParliament @WorldResources @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica Click To Tweet


Egyptian and Sudanese Governments need to honor existing commitments they made, specifically in the 2015 accords before demanding others get into additional binding agreements. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @AJEnglish @UKParliament @WorldResources Click To Tweet


All Nile countries, including Ethiopia, should and will use all water resources available to them, observing international norms and their own rights to achieve the health and well-being of their people just like Egypt and Sudan have. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters Click To Tweet


The main purpose of the GERD is power generation provide power to 60% of the country’s population! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr @EUSR_Weber @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @amnest @BradSherman @UKParliament Click To Tweet


Ethiopia's principle of African solutions to African problems is based on the belief that Africans are fully capable of taking care of their own problems without interference #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @EU_Commission @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic Click To Tweet


Besides power generation, the GERD will help regulate seasonal flooding, preventing destructive floods during heavy rains. And the reservoir will provide a steady supply of irrigation water for the downstream countries of Sudan and Egypt. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @IWAHQ @USAmbUN Click To Tweet


GERD for Ethiopia is the center-piece of its bid to become Africa's biggest power exporter. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF @trussliz @UKParliament @WorldResources @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica Click To Tweet


GERD will be Africa’s Olympus once completed. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr @EUSR_Weber @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @amnest @BradSherman @UKParliament @EU_Commission Click To Tweet


The GERD is an impressive feat of construction for Africa. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @IWAHQ @USAmbUN @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF @trussliz @UKParliament @WorldResources @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons Click To Tweet


The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) will not only be Africa’s largest dam, but it is also essential for future cooperation and development in the Nile River Basin and East African region. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign Click To Tweet


GERD is a biggest achievement that literally throws light on what has been called ‘’The Dark Continent’’. The brightest story and a great story unfolding in Africa. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems Click To Tweet


The GERD is completely financed by the contributions of the Ethiopian people without any foreign aid or loans. It is being built with the blood, sweat and tears of the Ethiopian people. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics Click To Tweet


GERD also aligns with Ethiopia's green development ambitions as it represents a sustainable socio-economic project replacing fossil fuels reducing CO2 emissions. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign Click To Tweet


For Ethiopia, building the GERD is not a matter of choice, but an economic and developmental necessity and the way out of poverty for a nation of 112 million people. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems Click To Tweet


GERD will provide affordable and renewable energy to Sudan, Egypt and other countries in the region. It will also provide many benefits to the entire Horn of Africa region and beyond. #AFRICAN_DAM @SenateForeign @hr @EUSR_Weber @LaetitiaBader Click To Tweet


Egypt’s claim that they will get less water because of the dam is far from the truth, because GERD releases the water downstream once the water is used to spin the turbines that produce electricity. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @KenRoth @amnest @BradSherman Click To Tweet


Ethiopia has been open and transparent in its construction of the GERD. #GERD#AFRICAN_DAM @UKParliament @EU_Commission @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @IWAHQ @USAmbUN @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF @trussliz @UKParliament @WorldResources Click To Tweet


Ethiopia's position on GERD negotiations is guided by a simple principle. African solutions to African problems #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF Click To Tweet


Ethiopia is acutely aware of the fact that Africa's post-colonial experience and more recent trends in foreign interference in African affairs have not been positive. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr @EUSR_Weber Click To Tweet


Egypt's reliance on the Arab League and efforts to use the U.S. to pressure Ethiopia, reflect either lack of confidence in the AU, which may account for Egypt's lack of serious commitment and unwillingness to negotiate within the AU framework. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @LaetitiaBader Click To Tweet


To date, no significant harm has been caused to Egypt or Sudan as a result of the ongoing construction of the GERD. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @KenRoth @amnest @BradSherman @UKParliament @EU_Commission @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @IWAHQ Click To Tweet


Ethiopia is committed to continue to push for a constructive negotiation to reach a mutually beneficial agreement that ensures the legitimate interests of the three countries. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @USAmbUN @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF @trussliz Click To Tweet

Ethiopia believes the only way to resolve the differences regarding the filling and operation of GERD is through dialogue and by resorting to technically informed consultations. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @UKParliament @WorldResources @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters Click To Tweet


The Nile is bountiful for all countries to share and use wisely. We must all think in terms of regional and collective benefits. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber Click To Tweet


GERD is the white oil of Ethiopia, a Divine Gift. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr @EUSR_Weber @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @amnest @BradSherman @UKParliament @EU_Commission @eucopresident @vonderleyen @JanezLenarcic @IWAHQ @USAmbUN Click To Tweet


GERD a turning point for Ethiopia, from poverty to prosperity! #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF @trussliz @UKParliament @WorldResources @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish Click To Tweet


When we talk about sustainable goals of the United Nations, one must note that we are talking about the GERD #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems @SenateForeign @hr @EUSR_Weber @LaetitiaBader @KenRoth @amnest @BradSherman Click To Tweet


As #Ethiopia marks 4th Year of Filling the #GERD, the #Egyptian Gov't persists in obstructing Ethiopia’s endeavors to escape from extreme poverty & embark on significant journey towards revitalizing itself #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM Click To Tweet


Where temperatures are higher, If you store more water in the #GERD than in Lake Nasser, you will have lower evaporation losses, and thus both countries would have more water available for their respective hydropower generation. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM Click To Tweet


The GERD is a ’Yes, we can do it insignia for Ethiopians. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @JanezLenarcic @IWAHQ @USAmbUN @CanadaFP @eu_eeas @JosepBorrellF @trussliz @UKParliament @WorldResources @MikeHammerUSA @Reuters @ChrisCoons @bpolitics @BBCAfrica @HouseForeign Click To Tweet


Ethiopia’s plea for cooperation is mainly a result if its commitment and firm stance that shared watercourses should be utilized in equitable and reasonable manner. #GERD #AFRICAN_DAM @CNNAfrica @AJEnglish @AsstSecStateAF @EUSR_Weber @SFRCdems Click To Tweet
