Ethiopian PM Abiy Ahmed and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi (R) meets with visiting Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali in Cairo, Egypt, on June 10, 2018.

"We will take care of the Nile, and we will preserve your share of the Nile water and we will work to increase this share".

The released prisoners reportedly left the country on Monday on the prime minister's plane as he departed to Addis Ababa.

"I swear to God that Ethiopia will not do any harm to Egypt's water", Sisi dictates the Ethiopian PM who speaks native Aramaic language, in Arabic, before he starts laughing and applauding Ali.

United States won’t discuss North Korea’s human rights records at summit
Kim is expected to stay at the St Regis hotel and Trump at the Shangri-La, both in the Tanglin area in downtown Singapore . Donald Trump had previously referred to the North Korean leader as a "madman with nuclear weapons".

At Sunday's meeting in Cairo, Ahmed reassured el-Sissi that his country had "no desire to harm the Egyptian people". Since then, tensions have mounted after repeated rounds of talks failed.

Ethiopia and Egypt have been trading war of words sometime back after Egyptian president ranted "Nile is a matter of life and death for Egypt" - connoting that it is a red line.

"The meetings of the ministerial committees are unable to make key breakthroughs without consensus at the level of political leaderships", Raslan told Xinhua.

Ethiopia will soon complete the dam, underscoring the shifting balance of power from Cairo to the upstream states of Sudan and Ethiopia, the Texas-based Stratfor intelligence firm said in assessment Wednesday.

Scarborough: 'My worst expectations' of Trump were met at G-7

The GERD will be Africa's largest dam upon completion with a total volume of 74 billion cubic meters and a construction cost of about 4.7 billion US dollars.

Egypt's president says both countries are working to achieve a final agreement over the Renaissance Dam that "secures" Egypt's fair share of Nile waters and helps Ethiopia's development. It is expected to produce around 6,000 megawatts of electricity for Ethiopia. The announcement of the ambitious dam had led many to fear the outbreak of a water war between Egypt and Ethiopia.

Al-Sisi said he has been working over the past four years with Ethiopia to reach an agreement on the dam dispute.
