“The declaration outcome on the Nile Basin Grand Renaissance Dam (GERD) at the conference held on June 27, 2020 organised by the Ethiopian embassy in collaboration with the EPASA ( Ethiopian Professional Association in Southern Africa (https://www.ethpasa.org/) for Ethiopia to finalize the filling and the full construction of the dam at the earliest possible time by managing intelligently the shameful opposition that has been done by the Egyptian rulers. The declaration is translated from the original Amharic version into Arabic, English, and French. It is done in four languages to reach globally all the people to support the earliest completion of the GERD. We call upon all the people who speak the different languages and do all they can to support Ethiopia that has been denied her sovereign right to the water of the Nile River despite the fact that 86 % of the water; that principally Egypt has been using for centuries without paying compensation except when the Turkish Sultan time;uses flows and cascades water and soil from Ethiopia.”
The declaration is drafted by the Ethiopian Embassy in South Africa, the Ethiopian Professional Association in Southern Africa (EPASA) and Africa Speaks and approved by the hundreds of participants in the first conference on GERD held by on line zoom in Pretoria, South Africa.
