Ethiopia, Sept. 16 -- Addis Ababa, September 16, 2021 (Walta) - Ambassador and permanent representative of Ethiopia to the United Nations (UN), Taye Atske Selassie said that UNSC's referral of the GERD to the trilateral negotiation and the AU lead process is appropriate.

Ambassador Taye noted the decision shows the position of the council on the consideration of the issue as a water right and water development issue.

"At a press stakeout we have underlined that the most important issue the two sisterly riparian countries shall be ready to deal with is a rule-based order on the Nile Basin, whereby each of the eleven riparian countries will utilize their share from the resource," Ambassador Taye stressed.
