Nile dam to begin work in June
"In June 2021, the dam will start," Bekele said during a lecture at the University College London, as quoted by Ethiopian news agency Fana BC.
According to the minister, Ethiopia is determined not only to use the generated energy for domestic needs, but also export it to other Eastern African countries.
Sputnik has learned from Ethiopian Ambassador to Russia Alemayehu Tegenu Aargau that the trilateral format of dam talks among Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan still works and Addis Ababa hopes that Khartoum will return to it. ■
