"think-Tank International Crisis Group (ICG) warns that the row over the a pond, around a bilflod to the Nile could lead to a war if the countries involved fail to reach agreement."
"Ethiopia launched the 2012 plans at a jättedam in the Blue Nile, a tributary to the Nile. The pond will be making a hydroelectric power plant possible, which will produce 6 000 megawatts. Blue Nile goes together with the White Nile in the Sudan, before it flows further north to Egypt."
"Egypt on its part is dependent on the Nile waters, which cover 90 per cent of the country's needs of drinking water and irrigation, and claims that it has historic rights to river water through agreements from 1929 and 1959."
"Talks between the countries if the project has been at a standstill for several months and think tank stresses the importance of the parties try to work together, otherwise it threatens to bring a large-scale conflict."
