An Egyptian Perspective on Nile Water

Pambazuka News published on 7 September 2017 a commentary titled "Egypt and Controlling the Nile: From Mythologies to Real Politics" by Hamdy A. Hassan, Zayed University and Cairo University.

While the author analyzes the Nile water question from an Egyptian point of view, he concludes there is a dire need for a strategic dialogue between Egypt and Ethiopia where all issues of common concern are discussed. He added this may necessitate a conciliatory political and media discourse vis-a-vis Ethiopia and the Nile Basin countries as the language of escalation and threats has always proven counterproductive.
