Egypt wants outside experts to help settle Nile dispute

Egypt wants outside experts to help settle Nile disputeBy Aaron Maasho ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – Egypt said on Tuesday it had suggested to Ethiopia and Sudan that they all call in international experts to help settle a dispute on an Ethiopian dam project on the river Nile. Egypt fears the hydroelectric scheme will restrict the waters flowing down from Ethiopia’s highlands, through the deserts of Sudan to its fields and reservoirs. Ethiopia, which wants to become Africa’s biggest power exporter, says it will have no such impact.
