Conflict on the Nile, US Policy, and Ethiopian Flight Ban

 The Washington Post published on 6 October 2020 a commentary titled "A Conflict Is Brewing on the Nile--and the Trump Administration Is Making Things Worse" by Stephen Paduano, London School of Economics.  

The author argues that the United States should help to solve Egypt's water needs by promoting better water management programs in Egypt than threatening to cut aid to Ethiopia.  

In the meantime, the director-general of Ethiopia's Civil Aviation Authority has banned all flights in the vicinity of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam in order to secure the dam from possible attack.
