There was a lot misunderstanding between these two countries, Egypt and Ethiopia, and this has been going on since Sadat to Mubarek in Egypt and during Haile-Selassie and Mengistu in Ethiopia. It should be noted, however, Egypt had been playing a major role in the decades of Nile talks sponsored by donors and World Bank. The nine basin members, now the new state of South Sudan is added, discussed and drafted a Nile Basin Initiative to manage the entire resources of the Nile with greater equity and efficiency.
