President Al-Basher voices solidarity with Ethiopian intellectuals on the Nile
Awramba Times (Bahir Dar) – Field Marshal Omar Hassan Al-Bashir, President of the republic of Sudan, voices his solidarity for Ethiopian intellectuals in utilizing the Nile water for development.
In his keynote speech at a symposium organized by the Blue Nile Water Institute, aiming on Ethiopian intellectuals’ role on the imperatives of utilizing the Nile water for development, Al-Basher spoke out that he didn’t hesitate to attend the gathering visioned by the late prime minister, Meles Zenawi whom Al-Bashir named the father of the new Ethiopia. “I wish all success for the workshop to achieve the goals that you are aiming at” the president added.
According to analysts whom Awramba Times spoke to, Al-Bashir’s presence as a keynote speaker at the symposium alone can be considered as a massive incentive for Ethiopia’s move to finalize the construction of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance dam.
