In unusual rebuke, Saudi Arabia accuses Ethiopia of posing threats to Sudan & Egypt

February 26, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – A senior Saudi Arabian official unleashed a barrage of attacks against Ethiopia saying that the Horn of Africa nation is posing a threat to the Nile water rights of Egypt and Sudan.

"The [Grand] Renaissance dam has its capacity of flood waters reaching more than 70 billion cubic meters of water, and is located at an altitude of 700 meters and if it collapsed then Khartoum will drown completely and the impact will even reach the Aswan Dam," the Saudi deputy defense minister Khalid Bin Sultan said at the meetings of the Arab Water Council in Cairo.

"Egypt is the most affected party from the Ethiopian Renaissance dam because they have no alternative water source compared to other Nile Basin countries and the establishment of the dam 12 kilometers from the Sudanese border is for political plotting rather than for economic gain and constitutes a threat to Egyptian and Sudanese national security "the Saudi official said.

The massive $4.8 billion dam is under construction and is scheduled for completion in 2015. It lies close to Sudan’s eastern borders and has a power generating capacity of 6,000MW and when completed it will enable Ethiopia to export more power to its neighbours.

Egypt fears that the Nile dam will reduce the flow of the river’s waters further downstream and Addis Ababa has long complained that Cairo was pressuring donor countries and international lenders to withhold funding.

An international panel of experts is set to announce its findings on the impact of Ethiopia’s Grand Renaissance Dam on the Nile’s flow in May 2013.

The Saudi deputy defense minister went further saying that Ethiopia is keen on harming Arab nations.

"There are fingers messing with water resources of Sudan and Egypt which are rooted in the mind and body of Ethiopia. They do not forsake an opportunity to harm Arabs without taking advantage of it", Prince Khalid said.

"The establishment of the dam leads to the transfer of water supply from the front of Lake Nasser to the Ethiopian plateau, which means full Ethiopian control of every drop of water, as well as [causing] an environmental imbalance stirring seismic activity in the region as a result of the massive water weight laden with silt withheld in front of the dam, estimated by experts at more than 63 billion tonnes," he added.

The Saudi official added that Nile basin countries calling for reallocating Nile water shares is a "real threat" to Egypt’s future.

"The information is alarming and it is important that we do not underestimate the danger at the moment and its repercussions in the future," he said.

It is unusual for Saudi officials who are known for being composed to make such damning criticism of other countries. It is not clear whether today’s remarks indicates hidden tensions with Ethiopia.

Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo, along with Ethiopia, signed an agreement to overturn British-colonial-era agreements dating back to 1929.

These gave Egypt and Sudan 90 percent of the Nile’s water flow and the power of veto over dam-building, even though 85 percent of the river’s water flows from the Ethiopian highlands.

Ethiopia and the upstream states contend they need more water because of burgeoning populations, industrialisation and agricultural projects.

Water needs are expected to rise as the Nile basin population is projected to reach 654 million by 2030, up from 372 million in 2005, according to UN estimates.

      It is very simple. Ethiopians are peace loving people and will do anything to avoid war. But history teaches us that no one has ever managed to defeat Ethiopia and those who are looking for war should carefully consider their options.

Ethiopia could have easily said we will use the water for irrigation as we are not self-sufficient in food production so we have a legitimate right to do so.

            Ethiopia must built the Reniasance Dam without any opposition.Ethiopia has a right to use her resources.The Dam is not funded by fake Arabs.

      heyu useless cunt u basically need to define what Sudan is...it is a parasite country of all nations.It’s only Khartoum that makes it looks abit like a country bcoz that’s where donated money is collected. It is a shame that your country has been using the resources of South for 21 years of war and still struggling with economic problems.

      why don’t you read the History of Ethiopians first? if you read it you wouldn’t give such a silly comment. It is neither juba nor Addis that will be vanish or suffer a lot but Khartoum, Soudi and Cairo.

    A clear message for the saudi Official. We would like to live in Harmony with our neighbors. We are sweet for our friends but bitter for those who try to attack our national interest. You may refer history and ask Italy on the battle of Adawa. I will be the first person to respond a counter attack for such type of invaders.

    Do the Arabs know that they are the most hated people on planet earth? Do the Arabs also know that because of them, many people around the world associate Islam with Arab and hate it? If I was an Arab, I would feel shame, and would like to hide in my mother womb! History tells us that the Arab monarchies are bunch of kings and emirs who are good for nothing!Takenote Saudis,Ethiopiawillbuildthedam.

        don’t forget that we Ethiopians were not slaves.we are the only african nation that was not colonized as we defeated italy at the battle of adwa. and also, if u go back to history, citizens of ksa used to be slaves here in Ethiopia before they got their gas and oil. prophet Mohammed was a refugee in our country too. so, we aint dare to hung ourselves coz we are proud Ethiopians.

    Arabs can stop Ethiopia using Nile by bombing our dam but they should know that we can also stop them making good out the water. If we can’t use the water they also can’t use it.
    If the worst of the worst comes, we can bring NUCLEAR WASTE from friendly countries and POISON THE WATER AT THE SPOT THE WATER IS LEAVING ETHIOPIAN TERRITORY.
    IT IS TIME FOR IDIOT ARABS TO THINK TWICE, WE FEAR NO ARAB!!

    If Egypt needs water they can buy bottled water from Ethiopia. If Saudi Arabia is so concerned about Egypt and the Sudan may be they should supply them with money so they can build desalination plants so they get water from the sea/ocean.As for Ethiopia, we will continue to build. We in the future will require money from Egypt and Sudan since they used the water for free for a long time.

    Ethiopia is on the path of development. And have been working wiz our neighbours for a long time and we will continue to do so. We ve the right to use our share of the water and the same thing for others too. War can never lead to any thing good, but if it comes looking for us, believe me no one here will hesitate to give their life for their country.NO ONE!!!! But i belive diplomacy is z answer.

    Ethiopia is right now in the hands of its enemy ’TPLF’ from inside and surrounded by historical enemies ’Arabs’from out side.Actually its a misfortune for us ’Ethiopians’ to have heard a barrage of insults from those ignorant and stupid arabs despite our proud history that we made against all evil creatures.Our prime enemy is TPLF not Arabs if they prefer war we’ll sort them and teach them a lesso

    As TPLF is an illegitmate gov which couldn’t deliver any sort of developmental projects in our country nobody would put trust on them at all.While TPLF collecting billions of dollars in aid every year for two decades in row apart from BILLIONS OF DOLLARS debt which is by far bigger than what Haileselasie and Mengistu both in unison had borrowed in the past they didnot come up with Dev’al projects
